Surprise Move: X, Formerly Twitter, Plans to Make DMs Public?

April Fool Twitter X Make DM Public

In a surprising turn of events, micro-blogging website X, previously known as Twitter, announced on Monday that all direct messages (DMs) — typically encrypted and drafts — on its platform would now be made public. This unexpected move has sparked widespread speculation, with users questioning whether it was a genuine attempt to promote transparency or merely an April Fool’s Day prank.

The announcement raised concerns about potential breaches of privacy and security, especially regarding confidential conversations among users with differing perspectives. This coincided with an announcement by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who humorously stated his excitement to join Disney as their Chief DEI Officer and work with Bob Iger & Kathleen Kennedy to make their content “MORE woke”.

His subsequent tweets correcting a typo and admitting to posting from the wrong account added a layer of levity to the situation.

Elon Musk’s leanings are well known. However, several observers argue that X continues to openly promote woke culture and brazenly supports the same cohort of people who were influential during the pre-Musk regime.

The announcement left netizens puzzled, with many expressing skepticism about the true intentions behind the move. Comments flooded the post, with some applauding it as a bold step towards equality and shared unity. Others took a more sarcastic tone, suggesting that X may not always have users’ best interests at heart.

As the situation unfolds, the world watches with bated breath to see the implications of this unprecedented move by X. Whether it will lead to a new era of transparency or open a Pandora’s box of privacy issues, only time will tell.
