Twitter allows staff to work from home forever

Twitter has announced their employees can work from home forever.

The micro-blogging site has decided to give their staff the option to continue their work from home, where possible, because during the coronavirus pandemic it has been possible to work.

In a statement, Jack Dorsey's firm said: "The past few months have proven we can make that work. So 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."

However, those who do wish to return will be welcomed with open arms.

The San Francisco company currently employs more than 4,000 people across the globe.


It has allowed employees to work from home since March, whilst their offices are currently set to stay closed until September.

Meanwhile, Twitter is adding labels to misleading tweets about Covid-19.

The app will be putting warnings next messages which are essentially fake news and users will be sent straight to a page with resources which highlights the real facts surrounding the messages.

Those wanting to read such tweets will have to click if they want to view it.

Such posts will be labeled with the tag: "Get the facts about COVID-19." Whilst messages which go against the public health experts' guidance may be marked with a warning as well as the link.

The warning reads: "Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet conflicts with guidance from public health experts regarding COVID-19. Learn more."

All that is required to still access the tweet is to click the 'View' button.
