The contentious social media platform Twitter eventually tulles up with a delightsome Encrypted direct messaging, but what’s rustling up in a chalice is much talking about the gremlin hidden behind the feature to rocket up several opposing arguments.

Encrypted direct messaging eventually arrived on the forum, but it seems it doesn’t looks good as It could have done if it hadn’t caught on trawling off the river. One of the amusing things about Twitter is it always admits who it is and how it could perform the show to put things off the mark.

After the acquisition by Musk, things got down the lane, and everything was going directly from the company’s headquarters. Quoting a tweet from Wednesday says, a statement made by Twitter’s Help Center, the blog indicates that Twitter aims to secure your messages from vile thoughts of getting it loose to third parties, as it mentions, “If someone puts a gun to our heads, we still can’t access your messages.”

Later the company confessed that it didn’t reach that mark yet. Still, it is working on the security update. Here comes the flight screeching its way out from the clouds to meet a person with some distinctive touch, albeit the falls of current encrypted direct messaging; its most significant leap is that not all the users could get access to relish the feature.

Aren’t both the sender and receiver of the message need to be verified? Yes, they should pay around $8 monthly Twitter Blue subscription tier. It means only a handful of users could opt to use the feature while others can spectate and jot down its defect. Piling up with many miserable things, the encrypted direct messaging is not encrypted by default.

You should enable it by toggling an icon to get into encrypted mode. In addition, the overall restriction of the feature would set you off; encrypted messages are limited to single recipients as you could not send them in groups. Media and other attachments can’t be added. Only text and links can be sent under the encrypted form.

Furthermore, Twitter cites that it doesn’t safeguard you from a specific type of attack called “man-in-the-middle.” As per the company, “If someone, for instance, a suspicious insider, or Twitter itself as a result of a mandatory legal process were to halfway house to an encrypted conversation, neither the sender nor receiver would know.” Twitter says it’s rectifying the mission, though.
