But that might change soon.

According to Mashable "Secret Conversation" would be in the conversation info section of the app. The messaging feature would be useful for users that want to share sensative information within Twitter's messaging feature, without worrying about outside sources intercepting their messages.
Maybe we can expect to see it sooner than later?
