Twitter is evolving and with it the way we know it. The 28th of November 2021 the worldwide known Jack announced that he was stepping down as Twitter’s CEO. Surprisingly or not, a recurring question that comes up with the news is: who is the Twitter CEO now? The answer is: its (now former) CTO: Parag Agrawal, also known as @paraga on Twitter. At Tweet Binder we have analyzed their Twitter accounts using our Twitter User Tracker.

@paraga’s Twitter account: date of creation and first tweet
As a social media tool that analyzes Twitter we know all about @paraga. Well, all this can be known through the tweets and information his profile reveals. For instance, thanks to a Tweet Binder account report we know how many tweets Parag has shared so far. Also, his tweets with the highest number of likes or retweets. In addition, we are going to revise when did @paraga joined Twitter and which was the first tweet he ever shared. With the account report, we easily found it:

And although the tweet’s date is from 2010, we know the exact day when @paraga joined Twitter. In fact, Parag Agrawal has been part of Twitter since the 23rd of April 2008. With the timeline of the Tweet Binder report we know @paraga was way more active from 2010 to 2012 than after that period of time.
Top @paraga’s tweets and Twitter facts
The Tweet Binder report not only tracks tweets but also Twitter handles. The Twitter analysis Tweet Binder performs comes with really valuable information. For instance, we know that @shiladitya is the most mentioned Twitter account in Parag’s tweets. Actually, we even know that 22% of his tweets are retweets and that he has mainly tweeted original tweets: 2.529 in total. From the 3,241 tweets in @paraga’s timeline it is curious to find out that 773 appear as shared through Echofon.
It is quite understandable that this is Twitter’s CEO top tweet by likes and mentions right now:
