Soon after Microsoft named Satya Nadella as its new CEO, the Twitter world went crazy over decoding the Indian-origin former cloud head.


While Nadella himself is not much of a Twitter crazed techie; users of the microblogging site, from partners to pundits opined what his appointment would mean for Microsoft.

According to PC World, Nadella won an immediate endorsement from former CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch, who wrote that he loved Microsoft's decision of appointing someone who knows the business and has watched the moves for years.

However, some users were still confusion if Nadella was officially declared the next chief. Thanks to the six-month-long flood of speculations and rumours.

Another user RameshK, posted an image displaying a dialogue box asking for CEO replacement of former boss Steve Ballmer with Nadella.

Meanwhile, Nick Weildfield played with words, saying 'Satya' is unchangeable, meaning literally in Sanskrit and it also meant 'Absolute truth'.

Chinese PC maker Lenovo congratulated Microsoft after Nadella's appointment, while Jonathan L. Yarmis said that it was he was a 'safe' choice for the company.

Editor at The Verge, Dan, pointed out that it was ironical to see fake Satya Nadella having better tweets than the real deal, the report added.
