Manish Maheshwari is Twitter India MD

Twitter said it has appointed Manish Maheshwari as the Managing Director of its India operations today.

Last year, Taranjeet Singh had stepped down as the India Country Director and Balaji Krish was given charge of leading the country’s operations in the interim period.

Krish will return to Twitter global headquarters in San Francisco to resume his role as Global Head of Revenue Strategy and Operations at Twitter. Maheshwari, who previously served as the CEO of Network18 Digital, takes over the new role from April 29, Twitter said in a statement.

“India is one of the fastest growing audience markets globally for Twitter. Twitter continues to invest in India and its leadership team,” it added. In his new role, Maheshwari will be responsible for driving an integrated business strategy to accelerate Twitter’s audience and revenue growth in the country, overseeing Twitter India’s teams in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru, the statement said.
