Elon Musk is selling over 1,000 items from Twitter’s San Francisco office. The auctioned items range from espresso machines to stand-up desks.
Twitter’s auction will start on January 17, 2023 at 7:00 AM PT and run through January 18, 2023, until 10:00 AM PT.
Twitter’s auction has a few interesting items. A Twitter statue of the social media company’s blue bird is up for grabs, as well as an “@ “sculpture that also happens to be a planter. Both the Twitter statue and the @ sculpture planter start at $25.
Twitter is also auctioning off a few lounge chairs and benches, starting at a bidding price of $50. A few bidders might also be interested in the espresso machines, ovens, heating cabinets, and refrigerators Twitter is auctioning off, starting at $25.
Heritage Global Partners (HGP) is handling Elon Musk’s Twitter auction. HGP told Fortune that Twitter’s auction has nothing to do with the company’s financial position.
“They’ve sold for 44 billion, and we’re selling a couple of chairs and desks and computers. So if anyone genuinely thinks that the revenue from selling a couple computers and chairs will pay for the mountain there, then they’re a moron,” said HGP representative Nick Dove.
Most of the items up for bidding start at $25, with a few starting at $50. Some of the prices are quite a bargain. The espresso machines run for around £2,000 to £3,000 brand new. Twitter’s auction also includes some designer chairs.
Given Musk’s knack for selling, some of the items will probably sell for much more than the starting bid price. `Twitter’s office assets might fly off the shelves like The Boring Company’s Not-a-flame-thrower or Tesla’s Short Shorts.
