Twitter has appointed Taranjeet Singh as the Country Director for India. In his new role, Singh will lead the Twitter India team by driving an integrated business strategy and spearheading cross-functional collaboration to accelerate the microblogging platform’s audience and revenue growth.


Said Maya Hari, Managing Director,  Asia Pacific, Twitter: “Taranjeet has played a key part in our evolution and growth story in India, which has become a Top 4 monthly active user market for Twitter and was our company’s fastest-growing daily active usage market worldwide in Q1 2017. Investing in our Indian management team now is a strong vote of confidence that we believe in the strategic importance of India and that our local business growth strategy is successful. I look forward to working closely with Taranjeet to strengthen our presence in India as a key global market for our company in the years ahead.”


Said Singh: “Twitter is the pulse of Indian society – it’s where influential and aspirational people and brands go to see what’s happening and to talk about what matters most to them in real-time. This is an exciting time to lead Twitter’s direction in India which is an increasingly critical market driving our global growth. The synergy between our content partnerships, business development and sales teams ensures people and businesses get the best of Twitter in India. With our amazing teams across India, I’m bullish with the overall direction of Twitter India today: from our largest-ever Indian audience, to the launch of Twitter Lite in India to reach underserved markets, to an increasing number of brands and partners in India innovating with  live video and customer support on our platform.”


Prior to being appointed the Country Director, Singh had been leading the charge for the sales and marketing support for Twitter’s advertisers in India.
