The announcement of Jack Dorsey's resignation as the Chief Executive Office (CEO) of Twitter on November 29, followed by Indian-origin Parag Agrawal's appointment as his successor became a trending topic on social media.

Soon after the news was announced, many Indians took to Twitter, which had a little bit of everything - from memes to jokes to simple congratulatory messages; with "Agarwal ji ka beta" being one of the popular phrases used by the users.

Here are some of the funniest posts made on Twitter in regard to the big news.


Many made memes based on iconic scenes and dialogues from movies to celebrate Parag's appointment. 

With this, Parag also joins the league of Indian origin CEOs in multi-national companies.

While this news was mostly met with widespread cheers from Indians, many were also quick to dig out his old tweets, which are problematic and have been facing backlash for it.

Agrawal, after completing his PhD in computer science from Standford University, joined Twitter as a software engineer in 2011, and later on became the Chief Technology Officer in 2017.
