Twitter not to appoint India head

"Sources say the company will be managed by regional executives based in Japan

At a time when the government is seeking more local accountability from social media companies, Twitter may not appoint an India head after moving Manish Maheshwari to the US as Senior Director for revenue strategy and operations. According to sources, the company will be managed by regional executives based in Japan along with existing business heads in charge of different verticals in India.

Sources close to the company said that this was being done to insulate the India business leadership team against any potential action by law enforcement agencies under the new IT rules."
