subject. Being there (Wonderful movie)
I was on Twitter HQ again until late yesterday evening and would like to offer a note of appreciation for those who have been there with me, as well as those who are working remotely, some of whom have been up longer.
To reiterate, working remotely is fine if you can’t reasonably get to the office and are performing exceptionally well. However, I am a firm believer in the spirit of teamwork and the effectiveness of being physically in the same place.
I’ll be in the office again today. Stop by the 10th floor if you want to talk about taking Twitter to the next level. The priority is short-term actions.
