But without enabling the encryption, those messages were subjected to prying from hackers, governments, and Twitter itself. There are already a few options for encrypted messaging, like Signal, Telegram, or WhatsApp. The feature shows up in the latest Twitter APK, indicating imminent rollout. It has become even more important for many users following high-profile data breaches and the recent Cambridge Analytica scandal affecting millions of Facebook users.
This feature could be useful for those people willing to send sensitive information via Twitter but are forced to use the likes of Signal to do it.
Twitter is one of few social networks that doesn't support end-to-end encryption in some form.

Encryption makes it possible for end users to concept another with no fear which other functions can hack and also read the talks. A Twitter spokesperson however, declined to comment when contacted by Mashable. Wong revealed her discovery through a tweet on Thursday, stating, "Twitter is working on End-to-End Encrypted Secret DM!" Instant messaging app WhatsApp also uses "end-to-end encryption" while this can be opted into Messenger, as well.
It should be noted that Twitter now transmits direct messages in plain text.
