Did you believe this announcement. 🙂

Just don’t. Actually it was a silly joke by announced on Upwork Blog which “falls on April Fools Day”. That was a joke that really got every one on upwork community and even on other social media.

Actually Upwork team released the announcement first on the Official Upwork announcement board by Lina E. In which she said “For more information, read our blog post here.”. Then when you follow the link to the blog you will find out that it was a big joke. Nice trek by upwork to get some attention.  Though might think it is not acceptable joke to be said by a professional remote work platform like upwork.
