Twitter announced Tuesday it had named Daniel Graf as its new vice president of consumer product.

Graf most recently comes from Google, where had he led efforts on the company's Google Maps project since 2012. Most notably, Graf was responsible for bringing Google Maps to the iPhone after Apple introduced its competing maps product.

Graf comes in months after the departure of Michael Sippey, who led Twitter's consumer product for the better part of two years before leaving the company in January.
