Elon Musk is moving on with his plans to improve Twitter. In a recent meeting with employees, he clearly outlined what he is aiming for.

The new CEO called his plan “Twitter 2.0” and said the company would start encrypting DMs and work to add encrypted video and voice calling between accounts, The Verge reports.

We want to enable users to be able to communicate without being concerned about their privacy, [or] without being concerned about a data breach at Twitter causing all of their DMs to hit the web, or think that maybe someone at Twitter could be spying on their DMs,

Musk announced.

Musk is right in his concerns. In 2018, Twitter warned that an undisclosed number of DMs between businesses and their customers had been accessible by outsiders for over a year. And earlier this year, the US government charged an ex-employee with improperly accessing user data spying for Saudi Arabia.

It should be the case that I can’t look at anyone’s DMs if somebody has put a gun to my head.

Previously, Twitter has already tried to make the DMs encrypted but has put the project on hold. Now, Musk is set on rolling out encryption as a top priority for the vision he is calling Twitter 2.0.
