Parag Agrawal, an IIT-Bombay alumnus and a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University takes over as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of social media giant Twitter Inc on Thursday. The news came in as an update on the company’s website.
Agrawal joined the twitter team in 2011 as an Ads Engineer and did research in large-scale data management with collaborators at Microsoft Research, Yahoo! Research, and AT&T Labs. He took over the charge of CTO from former CTO Adam Messinger who resigned in 2016.
Parag Agrawal had stepped in the new role of CTO in October 2017, but the announcement was not made public until now.

An Official of Twitter said Agrawal is focused on scaling a consistent machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) approach across the company's consumer and revenue product and infrastructure teams.
"Parag has played an integral role in our technical strategy throughout his tenure at Twitter, including spearheading our efforts to make the Home timeline more relevant using machine learning and incorporating a more rigorous approach to data analysis in product development," the Official added.
Chief Operating Officer Anthony Noto left last month in a sequence of resignations, to join online lender Social Finance (SoFi) as CEO.
