After hearing the judgment, Agarwal was thanking Dorsey on Twitter for his mentorship and guidance. He was also thanking his entire team for supporting and trusting him so far. “Our purpose has never been more important. Our people and culture are unlike anything in the world. There is no limit to what we can do together,” Agarwal wrote in a note while sharing on Twitter.

Furthermore, he added that “at the all-hands tomorrow we’ll have lots of time for Q&A and discussion”.

“The world is watching us right now, even more than they have before. Lots of people are going to have lots of different views and opinions about today’s news. It is because they care about Twitter and our future, and it’s a signal that the work we do here matters. Let’s show the world Twitter’s full potential,” Agarwal said.

Agarwal is now among other Indian-American tech bosses and the list includes IBM chairman and CEO Arvind Krishna, Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, Microsoft chairman, and CEO Satya Nadella, and Adobe chairman, president, and CEO Shantanu Narayen.
