Elon Musk has added a new suggestion to his list of changes at Twitter. Only this time, it can turn into reality, now that he owns the social media giant. The tech billionaire today tweeted that Twitter DMs should have end-to-end encryption in his list of ever-growing probable changes to the microblogging site that has seldom updated itself since its inception.

“Twitter DMs should have end to end encryption like Signal, so no one can spy on or hack your messages,” Musk wrote.


Musk’s tweet comes in the wake of a $44 billion deal with Twitter which should be finalized by the end of this year. Changes are likely to kick in after that.


Over 5,00,000 ‘liked’ the tweet in a possible indication that the end-to-end encryption idea has a thumbs up from a chunk of his 87 million followers.
