Agrawal added that Twitter employees will work wherever they feel the most productive and creative, and that includes their homes.
The Twitter CEO said the company had quickly adjusted to remote work with resilience and agility when the pandemic began in 2020.
“There will be lots of challenges in the coming months, and we'll need to be proactive, intentional, learn, and adapt,” Agrawal added “Distributed working will be much, much harder. Anyone who has joined a meeting remotely while others are in a conference room knows this pain."
The Twitter CEO added: “We're in this together, and we each play a role in the open, inclusive, and productive culture we want to create.”
Agrawal said details about logistics, schedules and safety measures will be communicated to employees soon.
"Our culture is electric and palpable," he said. "Office visits, team meetings, and events all bring that culture to life in such a powerful way, and I can't wait to see it all happen.”
Agrawal had taken up the top position at Twitter in November 2021 after the company's co-founder and the then chief executive officer Jack Dorsey stepped down.In February, Agrawal announced that he will take a few weeks of parental leave for the birth of his second child.
