USA Benefits Greatly From Indian Talent,” Says Elon Musk

Many of the top global tech companies have CEOs of Indian origin. And now, Parag Agrawal, who stepped up as Twitter’s CEO, has joined the bandwagon.

From Google’s Sundar Pichai to Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Adobe’s Shantanu Narayen, Mastercard’s Ajaypal Singh Banga, Nokia’s Rajeev Suri, NetApp’s Rakesh Kapoor, IBM’s Arvind Krishna, and now Twitter’s Parag Agrawal, Indian talent is ruling the top positions of the top global tech companies.


Elon Musk appreciated the value Indian talent brings to the top tech companies in the USA by replying to a tweet focussed on Google, Microsoft, IBM, and now Twitter CEOs being of Indian origin with, “USA benefits greatly from Indian talent!.”

This discussion surfaced on Twitter after the social media giant’s Co-Founder, Jack Dorsey announced his exit from the company and Parag Agrawal took over the reins of Twitter as the CEO.

Parag first joined Twitter in 2011 and became the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) in 2017. Ever since then he has been involved in all critical decisions about the company. He was also responsible for leading much of Twitter’s machine-learning efforts.

Twitter’s former CEO, Jack Dorsey said that this is Parag deeply understands the company and its needs and it’s his time to lead.
