Here’s what Elon Musk is offering for auction at Twitter HQ

Twitter is selling off its San Francisco headquarters’ enormous bird monument, @-shaped sculpture planter, and espresso machine.

Twitter’s announcement that it would auction off a variety of things from its San Francisco headquarters delivers Christmas cheer to the social media platform’s devoted users.

Several of its iconic materials would be included, along with a sizable figurine of a Twitter bird and a massive sculpture of the letter “@.” Twitter fans have access to a variety of other amenities, including standing workstations, IMac displays, a projector, numerous espresso machines, and a charging station for electric bicycles.

According to Heritage Global Partners, the company will act as the auctioneer for the online sale, which will begin on the 17th of January of the following year.

It further disclosed that the initial bids for every item vary from $25 to $50. Elon Musk purchased Twitter for a record-breaking $44 billion, and he immediately implemented a number of cost-cutting measures.

When he initially took over, he fired half of the employees, which led to many former workers filing a lawsuit against the business. They claim that the business broke many federal, state, and local labor regulations.

Musk gave an update on November 4 and said, “Twitter has lost a lot of money because activist groups are putting pressure on advertisers, even though content moderation hasn’t changed and we’ve done everything we can to make activists happy.”

Nick Dove, president of HGP, said in an interview with Fortune that anyone who thinks the auction is important for financial stability is a “moron.” “We don’t choose which assets a business doesn’t need.”

He told CNN that it was similar to how a real estate agent doesn’t choose which properties a client needs to sell.

The CEO of Twitter recently published a joke depicting him with a shovel next to a tombstone that stated, “Twitter’s darkest secrets.”


It implied that since the takeover, Twitter’s transition and public image had been slowly fading. Earlier, when his predecessor was in charge of Twitter, he said that it was “both a social media company and a crime scene.”

Additionally, Musk cautioned employees who disclosed company information to the public that they would face severe legal repercussions.

The managing editor of Platformer, Zoe Schiffer, shared the email’s details in a thread on Twitter, writing, “As proven by the numerous detailed disclosures of sensitive Twitter information, a few employees at our firm continue to operate in a way counter to the company’s interests and breach their NDA.”

When asked about the NDA, Musk responded, “This will be spoken just once, but if you obviously and knowingly break the NDA that you signed when you joined, you accept culpability to the full extent of the law, and Twitter will immediately pursue damages.”
