Everyone uses Google as the main search engine and in most cases, as the only search engine. There are many Internet users who do not even know others, because Google holds more than 98% of the market share.
At the beginning of the century, when Internet search engines began to become popular (Google was created in 1996) there was more competition. There was Yahoo! He had his own search engine and later Bing also appeared, created by Microsoft. This is still active, but has never managed to shade Google.
However, although everyone uses Google, the CEO and co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, unchecked on Wednesday by publishing a tweet in which he recommended the use of DuckDuckGo.
As he said in the message – own of an influencer that a brand has paid to create content like that – has left Google and its default search engine is DuckDuckGo. He even recognizes that his mobile app is great.
It is curious that the manager of a great company like Twitter is positioned in this way, no matter how much Google may be considered its rival. Even the search engine company rang loudly as a possible buyer when Twitter sales rumors soared a few years ago.
The figures of both search engines are not comparable. While DuckDuckGo manages about 40 million searches a day, Google serves more than 5.800 million.
Dorsey’s message, however, has managed to capture the attention of the tweeters and has generated more than 1,000 comments and 5,000 likes. A good boost for DuckDuckGo’s growth expectations, without a doubt.
