Twitter Inc. on Monday became the latest Silicon Valley titan to appoint an Indian-born chief executive officer. Parag Agrawal, an IIT Mumbai and Stanford University alumnus, has been appointed as Twitter’s new chief executive. The move comes after Twitter’s outgoing CEO Dorsey stepped down after 16 years at the company that he co-founded and helmed.
