Twitter allows employees to work from home 'forever'

Work from home is Twitter’s new normal forever

After Google and Facebook, who recently announced that some of its employees will be able to work from home until the end of 2020, another USA giant is taking a similar measure.

Twitter will allow some of its employees to work from home permanently.

Twitter will allow its employees to work from home "forever", chief executive officer Jack Dorsey said in a company-wide email Tuesday.

For example, social media giant, Twitter, has implemented a permanent work from home policy in which Twitter employees will no longer need to go to the office even after the Covid-19 virus is completely eradicated.

Some staffers, because of the nature of their work, will be required to come in to the office.

The past few months of having staff nearly entirely remote "have proven we can make it work", the statement continued. And, as mentioned before, even when Twitter's offices do finally reopen, employees can choose to not go back.

Trump's niece faces lawsuit after writing 'revelatory' book
Robert Trump said he never consented to the book being published and argued it had been prohibited by the accord reached in 2001. Robert Trump , the president's brother, tried convincing a judge to block the book, which is slated for release next month.

The company said it will make decisions on reopening offices on a case-by-case basis - but warned that very few will be open before September.

Dorsey also added that only employees in which have no replacement for their physical presence, such as those maintaining their servers, are required to to be present at their offices. "It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual", Twitter said.

Dorsey's donation more than doubles the amount of money given to Gives2SF so far, Breed said.

On top of this, Twitter notes that it won't hold any in-person company events for the remainder of 2020.

Business travel will remain suspended until September, with a few exceptions, and all in-person events have been canceled for the rest of the year. Other major tech firms, including Facebook and Google, have extended their work from home policies through the end of the year. While San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced on April 27 that the city would extend its stay at home orders through the end of May, Governor Gavin Newsom has already signaled the easing of some restrictions. However, Twitter has started looking at the challenges facing the new normal, it remains to be seen how this passes too.
