"Rakesh Agrawal is no longer with the company,"
PayPal said on Saturday in a Twitter message. "Treat everyone
with respect. No excuses. PayPal has zero tolerance."
Agrawal, who was hired about two months ago, could not
immediately be reached for comment.
He sent several messages on Twitter, which have since been
deleted, from a jazz festival in New Orleans that, among other
things, specifically insulted Christina Smedley, vice president
of global communications at PayPal.
One tweet said, "Duck you Smedley, you useless middle manager,"
according to copies of the tweets posted by news website
