Twitter Inc.’s early shift to a "work from anywhere” model during the pandemic as well as implementation of a requirement to add more people of colour to final job candidate slates helped the social media company post significant gains last year in hiring Black and Latinx employees.

The share of Black workers among the US workforce jumped to 9.4% in 2021 from 6.9% a year earlier, and Latinx workers to 8% of employees from 5.5%, the company said Wednesday.
