As Parag Agrawal took charge as Twitter’s new CEO, celebrations unfurled in India, leaving desi folks in a frenzy and praise and memes taking over the microblogging site. Now, Amul too has jumped on the bandwagon, marking the occasion with a cartoon congratulating the Indian-origin chief.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey took to the microblogging site to announce he had resigned from his post with immediate effect, informing that he will be succeeded by the 37-year-old IIT Bombay alumnus, who had been working with the tech company as its CTO for years. While most around the world couldn’t stop gushing how major tech giants are being led by Indian heads, others couldn’t stop having some fun with wordplays, and the dairy brand too didn’t disappoint.
As many joked the journey from Agrawal sweets to tweets has ben marvellous, Amul too in their latest topical played with words to cheer for the new Twitter head. “Parag Agravaults to the top!” the cartoon read, and showed the man raising a butter toast, while working on a laptop, with a twitter bird sitting on it.
“Put on a wholetweet toast,” the brand added showing off their penchant for puns cheering for him.
