The Twitter founder and CEO - who also serves as CEO of mobile payments firm Square - took aim at Google with a cheeky tweet. It read: "I love @DuckDuckGo. My default search engine for a while now. The app is even better!"

Founded in 2008 in the US, DuckDuckGo is a search engine that prioritises user privacy, sporting the tagline "Privacy, simplified." It eschews personalised search results and refuses to profile its users. It sets itself as a more privacy-focused alternative to Google search, which famously hoovers up user data to inform its ads.

This is not the first time Dorsey has trolled a tech giant in a tweet, with Facebook in particular facing his mockery.

A number of recent Dorsey tweets have taken aim at the social media behemoth, including one earlier this month that mocked its recent logo rebrand from lower case to all-caps. Dorsey's tweet read simply "Twitter... from TWITTER."

On a more serious note, Dorsey announced in a tweet thread late October that Twitter would be banning all political ads from its platform. Though his announcement didn't mention Facebook by name, the decision was clearly informed by the ongoing firestorm over Facebook's policy of allowing political ads containing lies on its platform.
