California’s Twitter to let employees work from home permanently, halts travel

On Tuesday, the 12th of May 2020, Twitter Inc., the 14-year-old San Francisco, CA-based American microblogging and social networking tycoon, said in a statement that it was going to enable some of its employees to work remotely for an indefinite period, remarking the first major tech behemoth to adopt such out-of-the-ordinary approach, as a perilous wave of pandemic outbreak appears to be unfolding a raft of unprecedented changes in corporate culture all over the world.

Aside from that, the social media megalith had added in its Tuesday’s (May 12th) announcement that it would not reopen most of the offices before September this year, while the California-based microblogging site had also enabled its employees to choose whether to come to the facilities.

On top of that, the social networking titan’s latest announcement came forth shortly after the two of the world’s largest tech conglomerates, Facebook Inc. alongside Alphabet Inc.-owned Google LLC. had let most of their employees to work from home until end-December.

In tandem, Twitter Inc. was quoted saying on Tuesday (May 12th) that none of its employees would pursue any kind of business travels until September with little exceptions, while the company had also suspended all of its in-person company events for the rest of the year, suggesting a re-introduction of pre-pandemic working culture might take more times than many policymakers were anticipating.
