Twitter allows staff to work from home ‘forever’

Good news if you’re a Twitter employee – you may never have to go back to work, ever.

The company, which is headquartered in San Francisco, says its workforce of around 5,000 people have been working remotely since early March.

The arrangement has worked so well that Twitter says it would be willing to let them continue – if their roles allow for it.

“We were uniquely positioned to… allow folks to work from home. The past few months have proven we can make that work.

“So if our employees are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home and they want to continue to do so forever, we will make that happen,” CEO Jack Dorsey said to employees in an email.

For other employees that can’t permanently do their jobs from home, the company says it’s likely to open its offices by the end of the year, but not “before September”.

Twitter has 35 offices worldwide, including in New Delhi, London and Singapore.

Companies such as Facebook and Google have also told many of their staff they can work remotely for the rest of 2020.
