May 12 (Reuters) - Twitter Inc on Tuesday became the first major tech company to allow employees who can work remotely to do so permanently, as the coronavirus outbreak forces unprecedented changes in work culture across the world.
The pandemic, which has infected more than 4.2 million people globally so far, has led to strict lockdowns in most countries and changed the way businesses function, with work-from-home emerging as the new norm.
The social media company said it will not re-open most offices before September, and employees can choose whether or not to come to the facilities and when. Buzzfeed first reported bit.ly/35ULX6u Twitter's move.
