Elon Musk, the Head of Twitter, has stated that the company plans to roll out encryption, the ability to reply to individual direct messages (DMs), and other features later this month.
“Aiming to roll out ability to reply to individual DMs, use any reaction emoji & encryption later this month,” he tweeted. The post by Musk sparked discussion among several people.
“Great updates that will help conversations flow more smoothly. Particularly looking forward to variety of reaction emoji’s… it’s the little things,” a user commented. “Excellent. Chat encryption is especially a must-have,” another user said.
The “unsend” feature for direct messages was also sought by a user, who also commended Musk’s efforts in bringing the new features to the platform. Musk stated in February that users would have the option to change the algorithm to their “closer match” in the “coming months” on the microblogging platform.
According to the microblogging site, users will be alerted whenever a Community Note appears on a Tweet they have liked, retweeted, or commented on.
The company tweeted from its @CommunityNotes account: “Starting today, you’ll get a heads up if a Community Note starts showing on a Tweet you’ve replied to, Liked or Retweeted. This helps give people extra context that they might otherwise miss.”
