BENGALURU:Following the announcement of Parag Agrawal as CEO of Twitter, the social media site was flooded with congratulatory tweets from tech leaders, politicians in India, and Indians from all over the world.

Patrick Collison, the billionaire co-founder and CEO of financial services company Stripe, tweeted, “Google, Microsoft, Adobe, IBM, Palo Alto Networks, and now Twitter run by CEOs who grew up in India. Wonderful to watch the amazing success of Indians in the technology world and a good reminder of the opportunity America offers to immigrants.(Congrats, Parag!)” In response, Tesla co-founder Elon Musk tweeted, “USA benefits greatly from Indian talent!”

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, said in a tweet, “Wishing you the very best ahead Jack, and congrats Parag and Bret — excited for Twitter’s future!” Jack is Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s co-founder who is stepping down as CEO. And Bret is Bret Taylor, COO of Salesforce who is coming in as an independent board member at Twitter. Taylor had served as group product manager at Google, where he cocreated Google Maps.

IIT-Bombay congratulated its “alumnus Dr Parag Agrawal”. The institute said Agrawal obtained his BTech degree in computer science and engineering from IIT-B in 2005.

Vedanta Resources executive chairman Anil Agarwal congratulated Agrawal and said, “Indian managers are the best in the world. I have always believed that human resources are India’s biggest strength.”

Muthusamy Chelliah, director of academic engagement at Flipkart, noted that Agrawal was at Stanford, Yahoo, Microsoft and Bell Labs as an academic and researcher, prior to joining Twitter. He said it’s an inspiration for many young students here to opt for a world-class PhD degree and still have an entrepreneurial spirit to make it big in due course. He said Agrawal looks different in this respect — and thus path-breaking — compared to “other exemplary CEOs of Indian origin we hear so much about already”.
