The flow of employees and executives out of Google (GOOG) continues. This time it's a prominent lawyer, Alexander Macgillivray, who is going to become Twitter's general counsel, the NYT reports.

At Google, Macgillivray was deputy general counsel for products and intellectual property. He's led Google's settlement with book publishers and authors regarding its book scanning project, and worked on the Viacom-YouTube case, according to the NYT. Before working at Google, Macgillivray worked at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, the giant corporate law firm.
