Elon Musk pumps in more security into Twitter 2.0 with Encryption


Elon Musk, the Tesla Chief who took over the company reigns of Twitter a month back, seems to have started to transform Twitter. He first fired all the old staff and deduced the overall head count by almost 40%.

Yet again, he realized his mistake and called back some of the staff members with an excuse that they were fired through an automated software and now they can be back in the same designation, provided they are ready to work as her the new HR rules.

Now, Musk seems to have shifted his focus from reshuffling of the staff towards technology as he made an announcement on Sunday that his new Twitter 2.0 will include an End-to-End Encryption (E2EE) to all direct messages.

Precisely speaking, the feature was rolled two weeks ago and Musk confirmed its presence on the last thanksgiving weekend.

Security analysts suggest the move was done in haste or to probably divert the attention of the world from Twitter’s Layoffs more towards its importance of offering a secure technology.

Obviously, the new E2EE rollout could fetch in some privacy, legal and ethical tangles.

But Musk felt that the DMs will gain great importance in near time, as it wins the trust of its users to discuss legitimate and essential issues that deserve utmost privacy on Twitter.

NOTE- Elon Musk calls Twitter 2.0 as “The Everything App”.
