Twitter has stolen away another member of Team Google in an obvious attempt to tick the company off.
Why do we say this? Well, it happened the day after love day (hence demonstrating hate) and THIS guy is a real find. Not that others weren’t, we’re sure they’re quite special and fantastic too, but this guy has “advertising super genius” written all over him – and he has a thing for (talking about) blood-letting. Oooo.
