    And of course... There are a lot of references to the emergence of the Evil Corp. from the show Mr. Robot. On social media I mean.

    there are some other theories. google might have decided to take this step to prevent a forced division of the company by european union.
    plus, i am guessing that pichai was being headhunted by Twitter (amongst other companies) for their CEO position. so this also gives him a pretty solid promotion!

    Two of the world's largest tech companies are now headed by persons of Indian origin. Indian news media is likely to go crazy tomorrow.
