Twitter, the microblogging and social networking servicer, will allow employees to work from home permanently. Even after the company reopens offices when conditions get back to normal amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

As reported by BuzzFeed News, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has told employees of the new open-ended work from home policy in an email on Tuesday.

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

But “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,” Twitter said in a statement.

“If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it’s safe to return.”

“When we do decide to open offices, it also won’t be a snap back to the way it was before. It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual,” it added.

“Opening offices will be our decision, when and if our employees come back, will be theirs.”

Twitter has already banned business travel before September 2020 and also canceled in-person company events for the rest of the year with events for next year to be assessed.
