"The past few months have proven we can make that work", the statement continues. CEO Jack Dorsey shared the news with employees in an email Tuesday informing them of the change.
The company has also canceled all in-person events for the year, and is refraining from sponsoring business travel until after August. The CEO notes that Twitter was an early adopter of a work-from-home model, though - like much of the rest of the world - that push has been accelerated by COVID-19 stay at home orders.
"We've been very thoughtful in how we've approached this from the time we were one of the first companies to move to a work-from-home model", the spokesperson said.
The social media platform was one of the first companies to implement the "work from home" strategy in the face of Covid-19 and has expressed their intent to ensure that employees who's roles enable them to work remotely can continue to do so, forever. When we do decide to open offices, it also won't be a snap back to the way it was before.
"Protecting the health of our employees and our communities. That will remain our top priority as we work through the unknowns of the coming months", it said. 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.
Be Smart: Dorsey had announced the company's intent to work in a "distributed" way before the virus, but the pandemic forced the company to move the timeline up.
"I just realized this is live", Dorsey said before ending the stream. "The impact this money will have should benefit both companies over the long-term because it's helping the people we want to serve", Dorsey wrote in a tweet.
