From “Agrawal Tweet Bhandaar” to “Brown Boy Boss club": India reacts to new Twitter CEO
On November 29, Parag Agrawal became the CEO of Twitter Inc and soon after, the world started talking about him. While prominent personalities went on a congratulatory spree on Twitter, the vast majority of Indian users came up with some of the most creative and lamest puns as well as memes. Agrawal must have surely had a laugh at these, if he glossed over the trending section.
Parag Agrawal replaces ex-CEO Jack Dorsey, who was also a founding member of Twitter Inc. Agrawal has been working for Twitter for over 10 years now, joining them as an engineer. Given his Indian origin, Agrawal's appointment was met with a lot of enthusiasm from best wishers and trolls alike.
Indians go crazy with memes and puns
“#ParagAgrawal welcome to the Brown Boy Boss club! #BeDesi #BeDifferent,” wrote one user on Twitter.
“How did Jack leave twitter office? Do(o)r sey. How did twitter office welcomed new CEO? Pan - Parag se,” wrote another user.
Become CEO of foreign companies," writes another user while poking fun.
The official handle of Jaipur Police did not leave the opportunity too. “Twitter CEO may have changed, but the Twitter handle to reach out to us remains the same! Follow us. @jaipur_police,” said their tweet.
