Twitter users appear to be digging up old tweets of Parag Agrawal, the new CEO of the micro-blogging platform.
On Monday, Twitter announced the appointment of Agrawal as the new CEO, replacing Jack Dorsey who co-founded the social media platform in 2006.
Before his appointment, Agrawal was the chief technology officer of the company.
But on Tuesday, old tweets of Agrawal resurfaced, stirring conversations on the social media network.
One of the tweets was his reply to Chris Sacca, an American venture investor, and lawyer.
In the tweet, the Twitter boss admitted that he donated money to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which filed nearly 400 lawsuits against Donald Trump, the ex-US president, for a variety of reasons.

In the wake of the January 6 insurrection, Trump was prohibited from using his Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages after he was said to have violated their policies.
This was due to widespread claims that he might have incited violence in the US following his election loss to Joe Biden.
In another tweet dated October 26, 2010, Agrawal had also said: “If they are not gonna make a distinction between Muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”
Other tweets also surfaced including the Twitter CEO’s endearing exchanges with Shreya Ghoshal, the Indian playback singer.
