Twitter appoints Big Brother Watch director as UK public policy manager
Twitter has appointed Nick Pickles as public policy manager for the UK.
Previously director of the Big Brother Watch pressure group, Pickles said: “The past two and a half years have been an incredible experience, working with some remarkable people across the political spectrum and making major contributions to a range of debates about privacy, civil liberties, surveillance reform and freedom of speech.
“I look forward to the many successes yet to come. At a time when the future of privacy and free speech online are high on the agenda it is very exciting to be joining Twitter.”
Pickels is also a music photographer, and has had his work featured in magazines such as Rolling Stone and NME.
The announcement comes the day after Twitter reported a net loss of $132m during Q1 of 2014.
