Although Elon Musk recently banned remote work at both Tesla and SpaceX, he told Twitter employees today that he won’t necessarily impose the same policy at the social network. “If someone can only work remotely, and they’re exceptional, it wouldn’t make sense to fire them,” Musk said in a virtual town hall with Twitter staff, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Musk also pointed out that the work at Twitter is different from the work at Tesla. “Tesla makes cars, and you can’t make cars remotely,” he said, according to CNBC.

While his comments may be promising for those who want to keep working remotely, Musk reportedly did not provide specifics on how he’d handle remote work at Twitter if he completes the $44 billion acquisition. His reference to letting “exceptional” employees work remotely suggests that a Musk-led Twitter might reduce remote work options even if they aren’t banned completely.
