Twitter has announced the appointment of Parag Agrawal as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
Agrawal joined Twitter in October 2011 -- months after cofounder and current CEO Jack Dorsey returned to the company -- as an ads engineer, and he most recently held the title of distinguished software engineer. Before joining Twitter, he did research internships at AT&T, Microsoft and Yahoo. At Twitter his contributions include leading efforts to increase the relevance of tweets in Twitter users' timelines using Artificial Intelligence. It must be mentioned that AI comes in handy for things Twitter does behind the scenes, like preventing abuse on the social network.
