Twitter appoints Manish Maheshwari as MD
Twitter has announced the appointment of Manish Maheshwari as managing director for India. 
 
Maheshwari assumes the role on 29 April and will be based in Delhi. He will report to Maya Hari, VP and MD, Twitter Asia Pacific. He moves from Network18 Digital where he was CEO.
 
Hari said, “India is one of our fastest growing audience markets for Twitter in the world and our purpose is to serve the public conversation in India. We are thrilled to have Manish join us at this important time to take our Indian business to the next level. He has a successful track record of building strong digital businesses and leading teams in India, extensive experience working at the intersection of media and technology sectors, and a deep understanding of Indian consumer trends over the past 20 years. Under his leadership, we will continue to invest in India to empower all elements of Indian society to have a public voice to be heard through Twitter.”
 
Maheshwari said, “The future of India is digital-first and full of possibilities with the world’s largest youth population and soon, the world’s largest workforce. I’ve been a Twitter user for more than 10 years now and I’m excited to lead Twitter India now to greater heights in the country. With premium Indian content on the rise in multiple regions across the country, I believe we are scratching the surface of what’s possible with Twitter in India. With our amazing teams across India, I’m bullish about the overall impact that Twitter India can create in the country and the influence of India on our global platform.”
 
He takes over from Balaji Krish, who has been leading the Twitter India team in the interim for the past few months since the departure of Taranjeet Singh. Krish will be returning to Twitter's  headquarters in San Francisco to resume his role as global head of revenue strategy and operations.
