Employees at the San Francisco-based company have been working from home since March in response to the pandemic.

"We were uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere", the company said in a blogpost.

"If not, our offices will be their warm and welcoming selves, with some additional precautions, when we feel it's safe to return", the statement reads. "That will remain our top priority as we work through the unknowns of the coming months", a Twitter representative mentioned in their blog post.

This policy, however, does not apply to the ones whose job requirements involve tasks like maintenance of office and tech servers.

The Covid-19 pandemic has proven that not all employees are truly needed in the office to get their work done and as we continue to embrace the new normal, we hope to see more companies embrace the "work from home" culture as it also enables employees to cut down on costs of transport and allows them to also spend more time with their family members and loved ones.

Twitter will let its employees work from home permanently following the COVID-19 pandemic, and won't reopen until September 2020 with few exceptions. "It will be careful, intentional, office by office and gradual", it added.
