India-born Parag Agrawal was appointed as CEO of Twitter on Monday. He succeeded Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter. In his very first e-mail to Twitter employees, Agrawal sounded upbeat and ambitious about the future of the company.

"Thank you, Jack. I'm honoured and humbled. And I'm grateful for your continued mentorship and friendship," Agrawal wrote at the very beginning.

"I joined this company 10 years ago when there were fewer than 1,000 employees. While, it was a decade ago, those days feel like yesterday to me...I see Twitter's incredible impact, our continued progress, and exciting opportunities ahead of us," he said.  

Saying there was 'no limit' to what Twitter can achieve when everyone joins forces, he drew attention to the 'ambitious goals' that had been set. But at the same time, Parag Agrawal underlined that it was equally important to see how these goals were going to get achieved.

But out critical challenge is how we work to execute against it and deliver results - that's how we'll make Twitter the best it can be for our customers, shareholders, and for each one of you. I want you to #LoveWhereYouWork and also love how we work together for the greatest possible impact," he wrote in his e-mail to employees.
