Twitter Finally Brings Advanced Search Out Of Purgatory; Updates Discovery Algorithms

Quora is hiring! How do we know? Well Facebook Tech Recruiter and Team Lead Andy Barton just tweeted that today is his first day at the Q&A service. ┬áBarton follows Facebook product manager Sandra Liu Huang as well as (Facebook alums Adam D’Angelo and Charlie Cheever) in making the Facebook to Quora jump.

After spending 4 years at Facebook, Andy Barton possibly has the most stacked Rolodex of any person in the field especially with regards to Facebook employees waiting for vestment and/or IPO in order to explore other options.

Quora currently has $11 million in funding and 21 employees but something tells me they’ll be expanding on both numbers sometime soon.

Update: Quora representative (and former Facebook’s PR exec) Brandee Barker confirms over dm that Quora is “hiring a lot, but mostly really good engineers and product designers.”
