A lot of companies around the world have implemented the idea of work from home to ensure the safety and well being of employers, and employees alike. Social media tech giants, Twitter, believe that you can be as productive working from home.

Jennifer Christie, the vice president of the Lead People team at Twitter, believes that the company is, "uniquely positioned to respond quickly and allow folks to work from home given Twitter's emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere."

This way, you’ll learn to manage time wisely and really organize and prioritize your, “to do list”.
All the features of work from home are implemented into remote internships. Since they are already in the same category, expect remote internships to work the same way as regular remote work!
