The American tech company Twitter encourages thousands of employees worldwide to work from home due to concerns about the spread of the new coronavirus.
The company reported this in a blog.
Employees of the social media company in Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea are obliged to work from home. Other offices remain open for people who choose to appear at work.
Previously, the company had already suspended all non-essential trips for employees.
Twitter boss Jack Dorsey is a big believer in remote working. He had already announced the plan to work in Africa for six months in 2020.
Twitter no longer has an office in Amsterdam, so the call has no consequences in the Netherlands.
