Musk will do a Twitter fire sale

After the platform changes its name, more than 500 pieces of company souvenirs will be sold at auction.

Elon Musk is cleaning the house after Twitter changed its name last month. He is selling hundreds of things with the old logo of the platform.

Heritage Global Partners is selling 678 pieces of memorabilia, art and office equipment from the company’s home in San Francisco. One of the items is a massive sign with the famous blue bird logo on the side of the building.

Since the site changed its name to X last month, people are also selling espresso machines, furniture, musical instruments, fridges, lockers, and beer dispensers.

Moving Markets

There will also be two oil paintings of famous photos that went viral on Twitter: Ellen DeGeneres’ selfie from the 2014 Oscars with Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, and Lupita Nyong’o, and Barack Obama hugging his wife Michelle after winning the US presidential election in 2012.

There is also an indoor barn, a lot of art with hashtags on it, a record collection, and a sink.

The listing says that the first price for each lot is $25. The sale will start on September 12 at 2:00 p.m. GMT and end on September 14.

It will be the second big sale at the platform’s offices since Musk bought it. In January, he held an auction for more than 600 office things. This was the first time this had been done. An impressive $100,000 was paid for a Twitter bird statue for sale, and $40,000 was paid for a neon digital sign with the bird logo.

The last auction was held when Twitter was having money problems caused by advertisers leaving after Musk made changes to the site. But then, the people in charge of the sale denied that it was meant to help Twitter’s finances. Musk said last month that cash flow was still negative because ad sales had dropped by 50% and bills were getting more significant.

Musk is determined to change Twitter; the planned auction is another sign. After buying the platform last year, he said he wanted to make it an “everything” app where people could talk, shop, and live.
