    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.

Given his Indian origin, Agrawal's appointment was met with a lot of enthusiasm from best wishers and trolls alike.
