Indian American VP at Twitter Quits to Join Meta
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (IANS) – Senior Indian American Twitter executive Sandeep Pandey, vice president of engineering, is leaving the Parag Agrawal-led platform after more than a decade to join Meta.
According to an Insider report, Pandey, who joined Twitter in 2012, will work on Meta’s artificial intelligence and machine learning teams.
Twitter has been seeing several high-profile exits after Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced a $44 billion takeover, and then terminated it over the actual number of bots on the platform.
These are Katrina Lane, former VP of Twitter service; Ilya Brown, VP of Health; and Max Schmeiser, head of data science.
Agrawal in May fired consumer product leader Kayvon Beykpour and head of revenue product Bruce Falck, saying there is a hiring freeze now and Twitter will also pause spending in most areas.
Twitter recently laid off 30 percent of employees from its talent acquisition team.
Twitter paused most hiring and backfilled, except for business-critical roles.
