CEO Parag Aggarwal clarified on the ongoing changes in Twitter
Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal on Saturday tweeted a lot about the changes taking place at the company and his team, explaining why the changes are being made at a time when Tesla CEO Elon Musk is going to own the company. Huh. Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Thursday that the deal to buy Twitter has been put on hold for the time being. Meanwhile, Twitter has fired two of its top executives. Amidst these changes, Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal said on Saturday that he has talked very little on this issue so far but will now talk openly on this issue.
Agarwal’s lengthy post comes a day after two senior executives of the company were sacked. Meanwhile, Elon Musk has announced that Twitter’s ₹44 billion deal is on hold until data on fake accounts is found.
Agarwal wrote in one of his tweets, “Some people are asking why the CEO of ‘Lam-Duck’ is making this change while someone else is taking over Twitter?”
In response, Parag wrote, “The short answer is very simple: I hope that even when this deal closes, we still need to be prepared for all situations and always do what is right for Twitter. I want to lead Twitter. And I am responsible for running it, and our job is to make Twitter stronger every day.”
He further wrote, “No one on Twitter works just to keep the lights on. We take pride in our work. Regardless of the future ownership of the company, we are continually improving Twitter as a business for customers, partners, shareholders and all. The Twitter CEO said he would “make no excuses to use the deal to avoid making important decisions.”
He said, “I will continue to acknowledge the deep complexities of our service and our business. You can expect a change for the better. I will also try to bring more transparency in my work. No, but on an ongoing, continuous and challenging basis. Our team is working to improve public communication on Twitter.”
He also thanked the entire Twitter team. He praised the team on Twitter, writing, “They are strong and focused, bright. They are working as usual.”
