Facebook and Google recently said most employees could continue working remotely through the end of the year but did not share any longer-term changes. After all, not many employees enjoy things like game rooms, free gourmet meals, and recreational activities at their place of work. There has been a mentality that working from home was stealing from the boss and facetime in the office was more important.
The social media site also said staff would be able to go back to the office if they choose when it reopens, as the company looks towards a post-COVID-19 future.
Twitter's employees started working from home in March as the company has suspended nearly all employee business travel and all of its in-person events until 2021.
The company also increased its allowance for work-from-home supplies to $1,000 for all employees.
Additionally on the decision, Dorsey famous that Twitter was on the vanguard of "transiting of us to make money working from home".
However, Twitter clarified that those employees fulfiling functions such as maintenance of servers will still be required to come in.
Some Twitter employees may never return to their offices even after coronavirus restrictions lift.
The company says it will adopt a careful approach and start opening offices one by one, gradually from September.
The CEO notes that Twitter was an earlier adopter of a work-from-home model, though - like much the rest of the world - that push has been accelerated by COVID-19 stay at home orders.
Furthermore, the company is cancelling all in-person events for the remainder of 2020. However "if our workers are in a job and state of affairs that allows them to make money working from home they usually need to proceed to take action without end, we'll make that occur", Twitter mentioned in a press release.
On 2 March, the San Francisco-based company "strongly encouraged" its entire workforce of 5,000 employees to work from home.
