Twitter will soon allow calls and encrypted messages, according to Musk
Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter Inc., provided information on new features coming to the platform on Tuesday, including calls and encrypted chat.
Musk hinted at plans for “Twitter 2.0 The Everything App” last year, saying it will include functions like payments, long form tweets, and encrypted direct messaging (DMs).
Voice and video chat from your handle to anybody on this platform will be available shortly, according to Musk, who stated in a tweet on Tuesday. This will let you to communicate with individuals anywhere in the globe without having to give them your phone number.
With the addition of the call function, Twitter will more closely resemble other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, both of which are owned by Meta (META.O).
Musk stated that starting on Wednesday, a form of encrypted direct messaging will be accessible on Twitter, but he did not specify if calls will also be secured.
This week, Twitter said that it will begin a purging process by deleting and archiving accounts that had not been used for a while.
