(Reuters) - Twitter Inc said it had appointed former Facebook Inc Chief Technology Officer Bret Taylor to its board, effective immediately.

Taylor is currently the chief executive of startup Quip.

Taylor became the CTO of Facebook after it acquired FriendFeed, the social network he co-founded in 2007.

Before that, he was a group product manager at Alphabet Inc's Google, where he co-created Google Maps and started Google's Developer product group.
