Cyclone Elon Musk hit Twitter and the first effects are already being felt. The new CEO of the social network shared with employees a ambitious goal that he has set himself and wants to achieve in 12-18 months.
Indeed, the CEO wants that Twitter has one billion monthly active users in up to a year and a half. The mission is far from simple, even if a comparison is made with other platforms: to make a comparison, Whatsapp has more than 2 billion users a month according to the latest data, and Twitter data does not show a horizon ‘acceleration so important, although a few days ago Musk announced that new Twitter subscriptions are at an all-time high, despite the comings and goings of personalities. In the week ending November 16, the social media platform averaged 2 million signups per day, up 66% from last year.
The executive also stated that Twitter logged 8 billion active minutes per day in the week leading up to November 15, 2022, with an increase of 30%.
“I think I see a path to Twitter surpassing one billion monthly users in 12-18 months“, Musk replied to a tweet. In the second quarter of the year, Twitter reached 238 million active users, which means that in eighteen months it should more than quadruple that number.
Meanwhile, Twitter has also removed the fake news policy regarding Covid.
