What Elon Musk Said On A Tweet On Parag Agrawal, Other Indian Tech CEOs
New Delhi:

Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday gave a shout out to Indian talent in America after Parag Agrawal was appointed at the chief executive officer of Twitter.

"USA benefits greatly from Indian talent!" Mr Musk said in a tweet.

Mr Agrawal, 37, is the latest Indian-origin person to head a 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. Mr Dorsey steered the social network during the tumult of Donald Trump's presidency and surviving an activist investor's ouster bid in 2020.

Mr Agrawal takes over the reins of Twitter at a time when the company is looking to steer towards growth and away from free speech battles.
