Shortly after Elon Musk became head Twitter, he indicated that there will be some top-level changes on the platform. He has assembled his team with a few advisors such as venture capitalist David Sachs, software technologist Sriram Krishnan and a few more.
However, Sriram Krishnan is still in talks in the country, mainly because he will be one of the Indian-Americans who helped Musk build Twitter.
On Twitter, he said he would ‘temporarily’ help Musk with Twitter, along with some other great people.
Now that the word’s out: I’m helping @Elon Musk Temporarily with Twitter along with some other greats.
I (and a16z) believe this is a hugely important company and can have a huge impact on the world and the person doing it is Elon. pic.twitter.com/weGwEp8oga

Krishnan, who will now team up with Elon and others to make some changes on Twitter, was born in Chennai, India. He studied at SRM Engineering College, Anna University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology.
After graduating in India, he moved to the United States and a few years later, he started working with Microsoft as the Program Manager for Visual Studio. Since then, he has switched to some of the top firms like Facebook and Snapchat to work in the product and software department.
Krishnan left Facebook in 2016 and joined Snapchat to build the platform’s advertising technology. He then left Snapchat in 2017 and joined Twitter in the same year to lead the core consumer products team. However, he left the job back in 2019, and since then he has been working as an investor and advisor for several firms such as SpaceX, CRED, VSCO and others.
Krishnan and his wife Aarti Ramamurthy now host a podcast on YouTube and Clubhouse where they invite CEOs and top people from top companies.
It seems that during his career so far, he has gained consistent and in-depth experience with the way social media or software apps work. He has also worked on Twitter in the past and helped SpaceX with investments and advice.
This signals that he may have a healthy relationship with Musk and since he has experience working for the product team at Twitter, he may be right to help Musk make the necessary changes on the platform.
