SAN FRANCISCO (REUTERS) - PayPal, the payment processing arm of eBay Inc, said on Saturday that it parted ways with a recently-hired strategy executive after he posted a series of disparaging and at times indecipherable tweets.

"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.
