Elon Musk's tweet on Parag Agrawal's appointment as Twitter chief
New Delhi : Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday gave a shout out to the newly appointed Twitter chief Parag Agrawal.
"USA benefits greatly from Indian talent!" Elon Musk wrote in a tweet.
The entrepreneur was replying to a tweet on how Indian-origin persons are now at the helm of some of the top tech companies like Microsoft, Google and IBM.
Parag Agrawal has become the latest Indian to head a new major US-based tech company, following the likes of Google-parent Alphabet's CEO Sundar Pichai and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
On Monday, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey announced that he would be leaving the company.
Parag had joined Twitter in 2011 and was elated to Chief Technical Officer in 2017. Mr Dorsey said that Parag had always been there behind the critical decisions.
"He leads with heart and soul, and is someone I learn from daily. My trust in him as our CEO is bone deep," Mr Dorsey said about Mr Agrawal.
