"Private messages that are encrypted have just gone live in an early version," he stated. "Try it, but don't trust it yet."

Musk announced end-to-end encryption for personal communications and video and audio calling earlier on Wednesday, though he did not specify whether calls would also be secured.

In November, The Verge reported that Twitter would introduce encrypted video and audio conversations between accounts in addition to encrypting private messages. The newspaper also mentioned that Musk wants to make platform encryption a major priority.
