Twitter is closing its Australian office, which had once occupied a whole floor of an office tower in Sydney’s CBD, as the short-form social network champions its flexible workplace policy.
Twitter launched its Sydney CBD office in 2016 with a “beachy” theme and a library that contained almost no books at the time press were invited to tour.

A source close to Twitter, who was not authorised to talk publicly, said staff had been told they would be working from home indefinitely because the office was closing.
A Twitter spokesman said: “No decision has been made”, emphasising that the company’s commitment to its Australian staff, customers, business and users was strong. It will consult with staff about future property plans.
