Twitter users could soon be able to conduct "secret conversations" with encrypted messages similar to other messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram and Signal.
Twitter has apparently been working on an end-to-end encrypted conversations feature, much like what's already available in Apple's Messages, and many other chat services. It reports that the encrypted DMs feature was first spotted inside Twitter's AndroidAPK by computer science student Jane Manchun Wong, a sign that the firm is trialling the feature before making it publicly available. The code for the feature, called a secret conversation, was found in the Twitter for Android app. The feature was first spotted inside Twitter's Android package by a third party developer, Jane Manchun Wong, who also spotted the Avatar feature on Facebook's Android package.
Sadly, there's now no information on when Twitter plans to roll out the feature. Users can also view encryption keys of themselves and a recipient. A Twitter spokesperson however, declined to comment when contacted by Mashable. Wong revealed this in a tweet on Thursday which says,"Twitter is working on End-to-End Encrypted Secret DM!" and posted a screenshot to construe the same.
