Including employees working from home 'forever'.

It said it has built up a decentralised workforce that is "capable of working from anywhere" adding that "the past few months have proven we can make that work".

Twitter will allow its employees to work from home "forever", chief executive officer Jack Dorsey said in a company-wide email Tuesday.

If employees do want to return to the office, they can do so when the time comes with some additional precautions.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is donating $15 million to San Francisco's coronavirus relief fund, some of which will go toward illegal immigrants, according to Mayor London Breed.

A Twitter spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the company had thought well on how to approach this as he cited that Twitter was "one of the first companies to move to a work-from-home model".

It has told all employees that are able to work from home to do so for as long as they wish - noting that those who want to come back will be able to when the outbreak recedes.

This has become a pattern within other major tech companies which have introduced new work from home policies. 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", she wrote.

She also noted that in the next few months, opening offices will be the decision of the tech company, when and if the employees come back, will also be theirs.

Business travel will remain suspended until September, with a few exceptions, and all in-person events have been canceled for the rest of the year.

In the email, Dorsey also addressed a couple more things.

Twitter has suspended nearly all employee business travel and all of its in-person events until 2021. After Twitter made the decision to send office workers home on March 11, other companies quickly followed suit. Facebook and Google recently extended their work-from-home policy until next year, with the former company giving employees an £807 ($1000) dollar bonus to aid their transition to remote working.
