After the data-breach scandal with Facebook, Twitter is working on a "Secret" encrypted messaging feature which could make the microblogging platform safer for sensitive communications.
A few days ago, Jane Wong, a computer science student, spotted a new set of options labeled "Secret Conversations" in her Twitter app. Now that more and more people are using Twitter's direct messaging feature, it's important we have it there, too. This, therefore, shows that Twitter is at least working on a feature allowing DMs to be encrypted. However based on this discovery, it seems that Twitter could now be actually actively doing something about it. WhatsApp, the messaging application provider has provided end to end encryption and ensures that the company will not have access to the communication. The newly discovered feature is said to allow the users to have conversations that will be end-to-end encrypted for an added layer of protection. Although Twitter does not have other functions that Whatsapp has, it still has numerous same features. Also, the user sending the message and the recipient will also be able to see the encryption keys that are used for securing their conversations. There, a new "encryption settings" tab contains an option to start a secret text message, learn more about encryption, or view both your own and the person you're messaging's encryption keys.

Twitter declined to comment on the report, so it's not yet known when the company will, if at all, make the Secret conversations functionality available to all.
Without encryption, messages are subject to being spied upon by governments, hackers or Twitter itself, TechCrunchnoted. Whatsapp's co-founder Jan Koum recently left the company because of possible "differences in approach" regarding Facebook's ad targeting and encryption plans. At the time, Dorsey responded that it was a "reasonable" request and "something we'll think about".
