Twitter is auctioning off hundreds of items from its San Francisco headquarters.
With bids starting as low as $25 to $50, you could own an oversized Twitter bird statue, a Kegerator beer dispenser, or furniture—all dating from pre-Elon Musk ownership.
Twitter is not attempting to raise money from the sale. Nick Dove, president of the auction house selling the items, Heritage Global Partners, told CNN the company is simply rising itself of “surplus corporate assets.”
Other, more mundane items for sale include six-foot-tall sculpture planter, a projector, iMax screens, standing desks, espresso machines, kitchenware, furniture and an electric bike charging station.
After purchasing the social media behemoth for $44 billion on Oct. 28, 2022, Musk has slashed more than half of the staff, and brought in beds to enable workers to, reportedly, work 12 hours a day, seven days a week.
All of this is part of Musk’s Twitter 2.0 vision, the centerpiece of which is turning the social media platform into, in Musk’s own words, “the everything app.”
At Tesla's annual meeting in August, Musk said he had a myriad of ideas on how to make Twitter "radically better" and spoke about his vision for X, a financial services company he founded in 1999.
An "everything app" could be along the lines of TikTok or WeChat, each of which are used by more than 1 billion people every day, pundits and Wall Street analysts say.
