Twitter India Country Director Taranjeet Singh has announced his decision to move on from Twitter India.

Late Tuesday evening Singh tweeted, “Hello everyone, after 4 amazing years, I have decided to move on from @TwitterIndia - from being one of the first @Twitter employees in #India, to building up the sales team from the ground up, to leading our expansion and investments as the India Country Director #AmazingRide.”

Singh’s Twitter journey began in January 2015. He joined the social media platform’s India office as Business Head and was leading the charge for sales and marketing support for Twitter's advertisers in India. In 2017 he was elevated to the position of Country Director for Twitter India.

As Singh transitions out of his position over the next month, Bajaji Krish, Global Head of Revenue Strategy and Operations will be the interim country head. Singh tweeted, "He's coming from the US to be interim country lead until my replacement is hired. We'll ensure that @Twitter won't miss a beat here."

Singh added, “I'm proud to say that @TwitterIndia is in a strong position and will continue to grow stronger in the years to come. I want to thank all our partners, brands and agencies for their continued belief, trust and support in making my journey so incredible at Twitter #Grateful.”
Commenting on Singh's departure, a Twitter spokesperson said, "We thank Taran for nearly four years of contributions and leadership to Twitter India. He built up our India sales team across the country and, most recently as our India country director, he led our cross-functional effort that has made India both one of our largest and fastest growing markets today. Under his leadership, we have seen strong business performance, a diversified client base, and many innovations for Twitter across India."

He did not divulge any details about what he plans to do next.
