Twitter wanted encrypted DMs so bad, it licensed Signal’s tech.

When Musk says he wants Signal creator Moxie Marlinspike to help add encrypted DMs to Twitter, the funny part is this’d be the third time they’ve asked him.

He left Twitter in 2013 when it didn’t wind up letting him build that — and Platformer is now reporting Twitter wound up getting a license to use Signal’s tech in 2018 for attempt number two. By 2019, Twitter reportedly scrapped that second attempt as well. Third time’s the charm?
