comment encryption vs access control comparison
These are two very distinct concepts and I think you're mixing something up. Encryption uses mathematics to render data unusable without a key. That data could still be moved, copied or deleted. ACLs however assume you don't have physical access to a storage device (when you talk about restricting access to files) and just allow/deny access on a software level.

Assuming you're MITM'd you can't trust any connection without TLS and a verified signature. That includes twitter.
