Recently, founder and CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, claimed that he doesn’t use Google Search services on his smartphone to find information in cyberspace.
Dorsey said that to search for information on the internet, he prefers to use other search engine services, specifically DuckDuck Go.
“I love @DuckDuckGo. My default search engine for a while now. The app is even better!” said Dorsey through his personal Twitter account.

The chat was immediately welcomed by DuckDuck Go. DuckDuck Go’s official Twitter account then replied Dorsey’s tweet and said that they were happy to learn that the Twitter boss was one of their service users.
Citing Business Insider, DuckDuck Go is a search engine service similar to Google Search.
Even though it has been around for quite some time since 2008, the name DuckDuck Go may still be unfamiliar to some internet users. Understandable, because their ranking in the Alexa ranking was still above the hundredth.
However, DuckDuck Go has a unique approach. Unlike Google, which parses data from search engines, DuckDuck Go puts forward the privacy of its users.
For information, Jack Dorsey is often teasing other technology companies through Twitter. The tweet about DuckDuck Go can also be a strong satire for Google that often collects user data from Google Search services.
Comment: that’s cool, haven’t heard of such search engine before!
There are so many popular search engines less used out there.
