Agrawal replaces co-founder Jack Dorsey, who announced his departure on Monday

The Indian press has exploded with glowing headlines against Paraga Agrawal, an Indian of origin who has been appointed CEO of Twitter. Agrawal, 37, took over from Jack Dorsey’s Twitter co-founders.

Agrawal has worked at Twitter since 2011 and became the company’s CTO six years after his arrival.

Paraga Agrawala is considered a reliable manager and has a lot of work to do. But for the Indian press and social networks – and in India, Twitter has more than 30 million users – the appointment was a cause for celebration for a compatriot.

Agrawala has been praised by thousands of Indian users. Many noted that he had become the youngest CEO of an S&P 500 company. Others recalled a long list of Indian CEOs at major tech companies.
