Twitter’s new CEO
Twitter Inc. on Monday became the latest Silicon Valley titan to appoint a chief executive officer of Indian origin. Microsoft, as well as Google, are acknowledging the Asian nation as being among the richest sources of tech-related talent.
The appointment of the former Chief Technology Officer, Parag Agrawal, to the top position at Twitter is a testament to the power of immigrants within the world's top technology firms. He is joining Satya Nadella of Microsoft Corp., Shantanu Narayen of Adobe Inc., Arvind Krishna of International Business Machines Corp., and Sundar Pichai of Alphabet Inc. among the most well-known top executives from U.S. firms of Indian origin.
Together, this group of executive leaders overseas companies that have a total market worth of close to $5 trillion. Outside of technology, Indra Nooyi led PepsiCo Inc. for 12 years, and Ajay Banga is the executive chair for Mastercard Inc. after a decade as the company's CEO.
Like his Valley counterparts, Agrawal comes from a technical background and has worked his way up the ladder within the company. At the age of 37, he's the youngest CEO of any S&P 500 company.
In his letter after stepping down, former Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey endorsed Agrawal's technical capabilities as "transformational" in his letter. However, it will be the new CEO's ability to navigate difficult issues such as freedom of expression, racism, and relationships with the government that will be tested soon.
In a rare conversation a year back, Agrawal revealed Twitter's strategy for handling false information as "an ever-changing, nuanced approach that includes an array of options." The tweets echo Dorsey's insistence on keeping Twitter an open platform. Agrawal added that "we try to avoid judging the truth, but instead look at the possibility of harm."
In the country he was born in, which is in which Twitter has more than twenty million people, his company has been under fire by PM Narendra Modi's administration on multiple different fronts. The Modi administration has been criticized for its inability to remove messages of support for farmers' protests as well as its handling of tweets from leaders from both sides of the political spectrum.
Twitter has a similar function in the national political debate than it does in the U.S., with Modi's account having a total following of 773 million followers.
The elevation of Agrawal can help in the long run, says Wadhwa. "Jack's arrogance has turned the authorities off," the politician said. "If you consider the fact that Microsoft is not targeted by the right or left across the U.S., it is due to Satya and his ability to accept criticism and to maintain a sense of equilibrium. I believe that Agrawal will follow suit."
At present, Agrawal has maintained a low profile, and his expertise is primarily in the development of products and market research. He was the first of Twitter's prominent engineers for his contribution to helping to increase audience growth and revenue before becoming the CTO. As CEO, he'll be on the path to a more friendly relationship with India, which is crucial to achieving the goals of expanding Twitter's reach.
India is already the largest user base of Meta Platforms Inc.'s WhatsApp, with half a billion people, while Alphabet's YouTube has almost as large a user base, and Twitter considers it one of the fastest-growing markets.
Right now Twitter is making sure to fix all the small bugs that are making the app problematic for iOS 15.
It's not long since a new Twitter update might come that will eventually fix this bug.
