ANNOUNCEMENT: The boss of the social network, Twitter also plans to deploy this Wednesday the possibility of encrypting private messages
Elon Musk, who aims to make Twitter an “all-purpose” application, announced on Tuesday that it would soon be possible to make audio and video calls from the platform.
“Audio and video chats will soon be added from your account to any user of this platform, which will allow you to talk to people anywhere in the world without giving them your phone number,” he said. he tweeted. Twitter would thus offer a tool similar to those already available on the Instagram and Facebook networks in particular.
Deployment of encrypted messages
The multi-billionaire, who bought the platform for 44 billion dollars at the end of October, also plans to deploy this Wednesday the possibility of encrypting private messages. “This system will quickly become more sophisticated,” he wrote.
Since his arrival as the head of Twitter, Elon Musk has multiplied the changes and new features, sometimes in a chaotic way. He had mentioned in November his intention to build a “do-it-all application” allowing, among other things, encrypted messages, longer tweets and means of payment.
