On November 29, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey decided to step down as the company’s CEO. Along with the announcement of his resignation, the company’s board appointed Parag Agarwal, 37, to succeed Jack Dorsey. Parag, who joined Twitter in 2011 as an ads engineer, has served as chief technology officer or CTO since October 2017.  

"On November 29, 2021, Twitter Inc. announced that Jack Dorsey has decided to step down as Chief Executive Officer, effective as of November 29, 2021. The Company’s board of directors has unanimously appointed Parag Agrawal, the Company’s Chief Technology Officer, as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of the Board, effective November 29, 2021. Mr Dorsey will continue to serve on the Company’s Board as a non-employee director until his term expires at the 2022 meeting of stockholders,” the filing read.

Minutes after the announcement, Parag Agrawal became the most-talked-about person on Indian internet, with people talking about how yet another Indian-origin person has gone on to lead a global tech company. His name was among the most-searched keywords on Google with over 2 lakh searches.

Apart from becoming the top trend on the microblogging website, social media broke into a meme fest and most did wordplay on his name.
