Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, is having a massive garage sale to clear the company’s headquarters of memorabilia from before the company’s formal rebranding as X.

Everything from a typical desk chair to a sizable bird cage welded with the Twitter emblem bird is up for auction.

Musk has sought to redesign the social media platform ever since he purchased Twitter less than a year ago. Among other measures, he has abolished most account authentication, implemented a paywall, and laid off the majority of the company’s personnel.

The Heritage Global Partners (HGP)-run auction

Numerous “#” and “@” monuments, paintings of Barack Obama celebrating his reelection, Ellen DeGeneres’ famous 2014 Oscar selfie, a recreated Montana farm, and a variety of musical instruments are among the items available for interested customers to peruse.

Along with the stranger products, Twitter also wants to get rid of freezers, desks, and chairs that are used in offices.

The Heritage Global Partners (HGP)-run auction starts on September 12 and lasts for two days in San Francisco. All 584 items are open for viewing by appointment only and begin at a 25-dollar opening bid.

Twitter also put memorabilia up for auction in January, trying to offload similar items. X and HGP did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment on the auction.

Elon Musk’s X to auction off Twitter pieces from company headquarters

 Emptying out its San Francisco headquarters

Anyone who has always wanted to design their living room at home to look like a now-failing mid-2000s Internet startup may finally have their opportunity. The business X, formerly known as Twitter, is emptying out its San Francisco headquarters and auctioning off hundreds of items, including furniture, espresso equipment, and a tonne of bird-related memorabilia. Even the recognizable large blue bird logo that was painted on the company’s premises might end up in the hands of a disturbed customer.

Elon Musk’s futile effort to rebrand business X will be symbolized most clearly by the fire sale, which begins on September 12. A large number of desks and tables, musical instruments, beer dispensers, wood carvings of birds, lights designed to resemble birds, beautiful images of birds, paintings of birds on a monotype, and, yep, a bird cage are among the items offered, with prices starting at $25 before bidding starts. Musk recently tweeted, apologies, Xeeted, that the business would “bid adieu to the Twitter brand” and “all the birds,” and it appears that he wasn’t joking. Gizmodo’s request was not immediately answered by Twitter.
