DAVOS, Switzerland — Include one more veteran CEO to the record that is relatively doubtful by what Tesla CEO Elon Musk has planned for Twitter, really should the world’s richest male shut the offer for the social media system.

“I am a small puzzled,” S4 Funds founder and chairman Sir Martin Sorrell instructed Yahoo Finance Are living at the Globe Financial Discussion board on the outlook for Twitter really should Musk make the system less reliant on advert revenue as he has suggested (whole job interview over).

Musk has a eyesight to quintuple Twitter’s gross sales to $26.4 billion by 2028 on a consumer base of 931 million (in contrast to 217 million to end very last year) as he pushes far more into a membership design, according to a pitch-deck viewed by the New York Times.
