As more than a third of the world’s population is now in lock-down, we see COVID-19 not only having severe implications on people’s health but also having a significant knock-on effect on their livelihoods. A recent YouGov report highlights that one in twenty people in the UK lost their job due to coronavirus and that 52% of those studied expect the British economy to be in recession within a year (Sparkes, 2020). In this paper we aim to investigate the online social response to the working from home WFH concept, by analysis the twitter activity around the coronavirus and WFH, initial findings suggest, 70.6% positive tweets before the lock-down, on the other hand, 78.6% positive tweets after the lock-down around the WFH.
