You could soon be having your morning video call on Twitter, if new CEO Elon Musk has his way.  

At a meeting with staff at Twitter's San Francisco HQ on Monday, Musk presented several features that he wants to introduce to Twitter going forward, according to The Verge.

These include end-to-end encryption to direct messages (DMs) – a feature that's already on chat apps WhatsApp and Signal – as well as voice and video calling.
