“Hello everyone, after 4 amazing years, I have decided to move on from @TwitterIndia — from being one of the first @Twitter employees in #India, to building up the sales team from the ground, to leading our expansion and investments as the India Country Director #AmazingRide.”
“I’ll spend the next month transitioning my country duties to colleague and friend @BalajiKrish, our global head of revenue strategy and operations. He’s coming from the US to be interim country lead until my replacement is hired. We’ll ensure that @Twitter won’t miss a beat here,” Singh tweeted.
Twitter spokesperson further said, “Over the next month, Taran will ensure a smooth transition to Balaji Krish, our global head of revenue operations and strategy, who will be coming from the US to be interim country lead while we search for Taran’s replacement in India.Balaji has spent the past 5 years at Twitter building up his global function and has also previously worked for Google in India to engage with CMOs, brands and agencies.”
“We wish Taran all the best and we will continue to hire and invest in this strategic market. Overall, we’re excited about our fantastic business opportunities and amazing team in India right now. The long-term growth trends make India a top global priority for Twitter as we work towards fulfilling our company’s purpose to serve the public conversation in India,” the statement added.

According to many reports, Twitter’s global head of revenue strategy and operation Balaji Krish is to chair as the interim country lead as Singh transitions out of the position over the next month.
