Google's Bruce Daisley has been poached by Twitter to become its first UK commercial director.
Daisley will be responsible for creating an advertising business for Twitter in the UK, encouraging brands to use the microblogging platform and building a sales team.
He has worked at Google for the past three years, joining the business as the head of display before becoming the director of YouTube and display at Google UK.
During his time at YouTube, he was responsible for rolling out its pioneering "skippable" ad format.
