New Delhi: Former Twitter India chief Manish Maheshwari uploaded several photos with his colleagues at the social media giant’s office on Saturday. Maheshwari has been assigned a new US-based role.
Maheshwari had found himself at the receiving end after being targeted by the BJP’s Uttar Pradesh government amid a run-in with the party at the centre earlier this year. He was even summoned by the state police which was scrapped by a court last month.
“As I wind up my affairs at Twitter India, words fail me in expressing how much gratitude I feel for my team. You have been my source of strength and inspiration during extraordinarily challenging times,” tweeted Maheshwari.
“Little did I know when I started my tenure that hanging out with all of you in the same office space right next to one another was special. Soon COVID-19 changed everything but it could not beat your spirit and resilience,” he said.
“Each of you soon turned into a square block in a video call. But the impact you delivered was game-changing… making Twitter the lifeline of the nation during the brutal Covid second wave,” Maheshwari added.
“I have learned so much from each of you working through this most challenging episode of our lifetime. We are more than one team. We are one family,” Maheshwari further tweeted.
