Twitter will be opening its San Francisco, and New York offices for the first time since the pandemic, Twitter CFO Ned Segal said in a tweet on Monday.

Segal said he was excited to return, but recognized the tough decision facing many employees about how – or if – they return.

“This will be an adjustment,” Segal said. “Yet we can’t just solve for us extroverts who live close to an office. A video meeting can suck energy from my soul, and today I have a pep in my shoe-covered step, giddy to interact with maskless, vaccinated colleagues.”

Office returns have been varied both within tech and throughout corporate America at large.

Spotify has also adopted a more relaxed working option for its employees by allowing them to “work from anywhere.” Other companies like Netflix, and Goldman Sachs have been more eager to get employees back in the office.

“I’m excited for flexibility and guiltless opportunities to WFH [work from home] when I have a personal conflict or need quiet, thinking time,” Segal added. “I’m thrilled we will hire people that work differently or don’t live near or want to come to an office every day… CFO staff has 3 people remote!”
