Director of Search Doug Cook Leaves Twitter

Twitter director of search Doug Cook is now directing his own search for a new job, as TechCrunch reported that he is no longer with the 140-character company.

Twitter confirmed Cook’s departure to TechCrunch but did not give a reason, but other sources told TechCrunch the company’s search team is being divided into two different groups. Twitter’s comment to TechCrunch: “We are investing even more on search and have created new teams to focus our efforts on inference, discovery, and real-time search infrastructure.”

Cook was with Twitter for less than one year, joining the company last July. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
