In a message posted on Twitter, Dorsey said: “After almost 16 years of having a role at our companyhellip; from co-founder to CEO to Chair to Exec Chair to interim-CEO to CEOhellip; I decided it’s finally time for me to leave. Why?
“There’s a lot of talk about the importance of a company being “founder-led”.
Agrawal said in a note posted on Twitter that he is “honored and humbled” on his appointment and expressed gratitude to Dorsey’s “continued mentorship and your friendship.” An IIT Bombay and Stanford alumnus, Agrawal joined Twitter 10 years ago when there were fewer than 1,000 employees. PTI
