Twitter advises employees to work from home

Twitter has strongly encouraged its employees to work from home to avoid spreading coronavirus or COVID-19.

 

The company, which has a global headcount of around 5,000, said our goal is to lower the probability of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus for us - and the world around us.


"Beginning today, we are strongly encouraging all employees globally to work from home if they’re able. Our goal is to lower the probability of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus for us - and the world around us. We are operating out of an abundance of caution and the utmost dedication to keeping our Tweeps healthy", the social media company wrote in a blog post.


Twitter notes that it was mandatory for employees in Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea to work remotely. "Working from home will be mandatory for employees based in our Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea offices due in part to government restrictions."


Twitter had banned all non-essential business travel and events for its workers on February 29,2020.


"While this is a big change for us, we have already been moving towards a more distributed workforce that's increasingly remote. We're a global service and we're committed to enabling anyone, anywhere to work at Twitter," the blog further added.
