X (Formerly Twitter) Auctions Off Items from San Francisco HQ

Twitter HQ Auction

What do a beer tap, a drum kit, and a bird-shaped coffee table all have in common? They’re all being auctioned off by X, formerly known as Twitter, and could be yours.

The auction, hosted by Heritage Global Partners (HGP), is set to start on September 12 at 7 a.m. PST and will end on September 14 at 9 a.m. PST. This exciting event is a result of X’s brand overhaul, as the company transitions from its iconic Twitter identity to the newly rebranded X.

X is offering a variety of items from its San Francisco headquarters, including furniture, appliances, and signs. All items have a starting bid of $25, making them accessible and affordable to potential bidders. Whether you’re a fan of X’s history or simply looking for unique pieces, this auction promises a treasure trove of intriguing and quirky items.

However, before you start envisioning redecorating your entire living room with Twitter memorabilia, there are a few catches. According to HGP’s terms and conditions, buyers must use the items for their businesses and cannot purchase them for personal use. This means that while you won’t be able to showcase them in your own home, you could potentially acquire some interesting items to add character to your workspace.

HGP has also clarified that while they will help buyers carry items to the loading area, they do not provide shipping services. Therefore, buyers will have to coordinate their own shipping arrangements, ensuring safe delivery of their purchased items.

Interestingly, this is not the first time that X has held an auction. In January, the company sold items from its HQ, including a pizza oven, office furniture, and an espresso machine. The highlight of that auction was the sale of a Twitter statue, which fetched an impressive $12,000. These auctions not only offer a chance for fans and collectors to own a piece of Twitter history but also provide an opportunity for X to clear out its headquarters as it embraces its new identity.

The X brand overhaul came after Elon Musk acquired Twitter in October 2022 for a staggering $44 billion. Since the acquisition, Musk has been making significant changes to the platform, with the most noticeable being the rebranding to X. Slowly but surely, the Twitter bird and its signature sky blue theme are being replaced by the sleek black and white X branding.

So, whether you’re an ardent X supporter, an avid collector, or simply appreciate a good auction, mark your calendars for this exciting opportunity to own a unique piece of X’s history. From quirky furniture to distinctive signs, the auction offers an array of items that will undoubtedly spark conversations and provide a touch of fun and nostalgia for X enthusiasts.

Don’t miss out on the chance to acquire a special item from X’s iconic San Francisco headquarters. Get ready to bid, add to your collection, and become part of X’s journey as it evolves into a new era of technological innovation and creativity.
