Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has announced that he is stepping down from his post, after being associated with the company for 16 years, while, Chief Technology Officer, Parag Agrawal, will become CEO of Twitter. Dorsey twitted about his departure from the post on Monday evening, while Agrawal also thanked his team and organisation for showing trust and faith in him for offering the post of CEO.  Agrawal is the latest India-born star tapped to head a major US-based tech company, following the likes of Google-parent Alphabet’s CEO Sundar Pichai and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

Educated in computer science and engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and holding a PhD from Stanford University in California, Agrawal joined Twitter in 2011 and rose to become its CTO by 2017. It is a great feeling to see Indians doing so well at the global platform. I, being an Indian feel very proud about it.  I feel it is our education system and world-class universities like Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), and Indian Institute of Management (IIM) that Indians are shining at world’s stage.  India has many more such educational institutions and they should be appreciated for creating such talents. Indians today worldwide have created an impact in almost every fields whether it is science, medicine, banking or technology.
