Activist investor and hedge fund manager Carl Icahn will make his next big reveal through Twitter.

According to a CNBC report, Icahn told hedge fund manager Karen Finerman, who is also a CNBC contributor, that he will announce his next big investment idea on the social network.

The article added that while the timing of the reveal was not disclosed, the idea will be unveiled like a “treasure hunt” where hints will be given first.
