U.S. Intel Agencies Had Full Access to Your Twitter DMs Musk Stated

Elon Musk has just dropped a bombshell along with TESLA quarterly earnings (which we’ll get to at the end of the article). Musk has alleged that the previous management of Twitter permitted U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies to access users’ direct messages on the platform.

In an interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Musk stated that among the most “absurd” revelations he has made since acquiring the company for $44 billion, Twitter allowed U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies to view users’ DMs. Should full government access to your private messages be concerning? 

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has long been a prolific user of Twitter, using the social media platform to engage with his millions of followers and share updates on his various ventures. His significant presence and influence on the platform have generated discussions around potential improvements and the future direction of social media.

In the past, Musk has occasionally criticized Twitter, calling for greater transparency and improved functionality. In October 2021, he conducted an informal poll on the platform, asking users if they believed Twitter adhered to the principles of free speech. The poll received over two million votes, with the majority expressing their dissatisfaction. Now, it seems time has been telling as the most recent bombshell comes into fruition.

In his most recent interview with Fox News: “The degree to which government agencies effectively had full access to everything that was going on on Twitter blew my mind,” Musk said. “I was not aware of that.” Future DM encryption may be coming as a result.
