Reports specify how Tesla CEO Elon Musk is targeting to increase Twitter Inc’s annual revenue to $26.4 billion by the year 2028. The increase would be up from last year’s $5 billion showcasing a pitch deck put forward by the billionaire CEO to the investors. These reports specify how advertising would drop to 45% from 90% in 2020 of the entire revenue.

Moreover, Musk has promised to revitalise the social media giant, increasing the number of users by removing spam bots.
