San Francisco: Twitter founder and CEO Jack Dorsey recently revealed that he has stopped using Google and moved its rival DuckDuckGo.

In a Twitter post, the CEO professed love to DuckDuckGo and said he had made it his default engine.

It read: "I love @DuckDuckGo. My default search engine for a while now. The app is even better!"
