Although Zomato’s CEO, Deepinder Goyal, is already an active Twitter user, his opponent in Swiggy has abandoned social media. On New Year’s Eve, however, Swiggy CEO Sriharsh Majeti decided to step out of his comfort zone (read: his “Twitter cave”) to “share NYE Tidbit on Swiggy”. This was followed by a sweet exchange between the top executives of the two rival food delivery platforms.
The celebrations on the night of December 31 were largely silent in the wake of the growing Omicron case, and many people across the country decided to stay and order food instead of going to the party. Dipinder Goyal took to Twitter to share frequent updates of orders placed on Zomato on New Year’s Eve – telling his followers that for the first time in a single day, the number of orders reached 2.5 million. He also shared several updates on what people ordered, how they tipped delivery partners, the success rates of different payment methods and much more.
On the other hand, Sriharsha Majeti, who rarely uses his Twitter account, also joined in the New Year festivities on Twitter. “I plan to get out of my comfort zone (my Twitter cave) today to share NYE Tidbit on Sweegie,” he wrote.
His tweet persuaded journalist Chandra Srikanth to fight “Jomato vs. Suigi”.
“Jomato vs Suigi! Bring Dipinder Gayal and Sriharsha Majeti. What are you two eating tonight?” He wrote by tagging two CEOs.
Mr Majetti, in turn, pointed out that the competition was not fair because he was still “learning the ropes”.
Hahaha this is not a fair competition. I’m just learning the ropes

In response, Zomato’s CEO shared an encouraging message. “You’ll do amazing! Come on, let’s do this,” wrote Mr. Gayal. Mr Majety answered with a GIF.
