Twitter has said their employees who are known as “Tweeps” can opt to work from home “forever” as the lockdown is easing.
The San Francisco social media company who employs around 5,000 people with a site in London have said they are among the first to offer this to their Tweeps.
In a blog on the company’s website, Twitter said “The past months prove moving towards a distributed workforce works.
“If our Tweeps are in a role and situation that enables them to work from home, we’re empowering them to work wherever they feel most creative, comfortable and safe.
“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.
“If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.
“Twitter was one of the first companies to go to a work from home model in the face of Covid-19, but we don’t anticipate being one of the first to return to offices.”
