37-year-old Parag Agrawal has taken over as Twitter CEO, after co-founder Jack Dorsey stepped down from the post. Parag Agrawal has been a part of Twitter since 2011 and has been an integral force behind many of the company’s major decisions. A long-time confidant of Jack Dorsey, Agarwal was elevated to the position of chief technical officer in 2017. So with Dorsey stepping down as chief, Agarwal was a natural and obvious choice, with the former CEO saying that the board had run a “rigorous” search and had “unanimously” endorsed the 37-year-old.
