Elon Musk, the owner of the micro-blogging website Twitter, has announced that Twitter introduced important updates very soon. He said, audio and video call feature will soon be introduced on the platform, besides the direct encrypted message feature is also being introduced on the app.
Currently, although direct messaging is available on Twitter, it is not encrypted, but now it is adding WhatsApp-style encrypted security, so that messages cannot be read by third parties, including Twitter employees.
In addition, Elon Musk also indicated that in the future a payment feature will also be introduced on Twitter, under which users can transact funds.
The news agency “Reuters” said in its report that Elon Musk announced in his tweet that Twitter will soon offer the best feature in the future.
According to the source, Elon Musk claimed that the capability of encrypted messaging is being added to Twitter by this month. At the same time, additional capabilities will also be given on the app in the near future.
Audio and Video Call
He said that in the future, audio and video call features will be introduced on Twitter which will replace the app. Elon said that very soon anyone will be able to voice and video chat from your handle on this platform. He further said that you will be able to talk to people anywhere in the world without giving a phone number. WhatsApp cannot be trusted, Twitter’s messaging feature will compete with free services like Messenger, Signal, Telegram, and WhatsApp.
Twitter’s calling feature will be added a decade and a half after it was introduced, after which it will be counted in platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp.
Although he said that the audio and video call feature will be introduced on Twitter in the future, he did not specify how long it is likely to happen.
Apart from this, he also said that a payment feature will also be introduced on Twitter in the future, for which permission has already been sought from the government and institutions and after getting the permission, work will be started on it.
It’s not clear how long the payment feature will be introduced on Twitter, but it is likely to take more than a year, while the audio and video calls feature is expected to be introduced in less than a year.
Policy about Inactive Accounts
Recently, Twitter’s management announced that accounts that have been inactive for many years will be deleted, which can reduce the number of followers of many accounts.
In a tweet, Elon Musk said that we are removing all accounts that have not seen any tweet or activity for the last several years. Users are required to log into their Twitter accounts at least once every 30 days, per Twitter regulation. When the procedure to delete dormant accounts from Twitter will start, though, is not yet known.
Free Blue Tick Service
Since Elon Musk took over Twitter in October 2022, the platform has undergone many changes and more changes have been announced. Elon Musk bought Twitter for about $45 billion, after which he ended the feature of providing free blue ticks to verified accounts and started feeding it for a monthly fee. Due to the end of the free blue tick service, the blue tick was removed from the profiles of many celebrities, journalists, politicians, and thousands of other Twitter users around the world.
