Elon Musk Is Adding Calls and Encrypted Messaging to Twitter

[ad_1]

Twitter is getting an upgrade with some brand-new features.

CEO Elon Musk took to the platform on Tuesday to announce the release of several new additions, including encrypted messages and calling.

Encrypted direct messaging should be available to users as soon as Wednesday, and calls will follow at a later undisclosed date.

Musk first mentioned the addition of encrypted messaging in his “Twitter 2.0 The Everything App” plan in November 2022, after purchasing the platform in October 2022 for $44 billion.

Since taking over Twitter, Musk has implemented paid verification, which was mentioned in his November plan, and last month he added the option for users to buy and sell stocks on the platform through his partnership with social trading company eToro.

Musk has been under fire for his “hard-core” leadership style after former employees reported grueling hours and sleeping on office floors. Additionally, since taking the helm, he has laid off nearly 6,000 workers, an 80% reduction of the company’s staff.
