The announcement comes soon after Twitter India head Rishi Jaitly announced his departure as well. In a series of tweets, Parminder Singh said “An update. After leading Twitter in Asia’s most exciting markets (India/SEA/MENA) for 3 yrs, time to move on to new passions The INSEA/MENA region is now split with MENA aligned to EMEA and INSEA aligned to APAC region. Right time for me to step back.”
