Twitter is working on an encrypted Video Chat feature

Elon Musk says he wants ‘Twitter 2.0’ to have video chat, voice calls, and encrypted DMs — and has enlisted the help of Signal’s founder



Elon Musk informed staff of Twitter that he intends to integrate secure direct messaging, video and voice calling tools, and more into the social media network.

Musk made a presentation at the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, which was dubbed “Twitter 2.0,” and included slides. He used the phrase for the first time on Wednesday of last week, when he sent the staff a threat that if they did not work “very hardcore,” they would be fired.

He also mentioned that one of his goals was to implement voice and video chat within direct messages, which is already a function of Facebook and WhatsApp.

Musk highlighted how Twitter may provide encrypted calls without requiring users to reveal their phone numbers, similar to how Signal works.
