The social network Twitter has put up for sale in an auction house a large part of the furniture of its headquarters in San Francisco, including not only computers, tables and chairs, but also coffee machines, pizza ovens, beer coolers, projectors and dozens of other articles. Heritage Global Partners will be the house in charge of conducting this auction of 631 lots, according to what can be read on its website, and the bids opened yesterday and will close at 10 in the morning today, Wednesday, San Francisco time (where it is at headquarters).
Particularly “corporate” items are included in the auction, such as a statue of the Twitter bird, which is already fetching $20,500, and a huge neon with the same bright logo, which has already fetched $22,500.
Although what is most abundant are chairs, tables, monitors and desktop equipment, there are also exercise bikes to practice gymnastics, boxes of KN95 masks and a good number of coffee makers, ovens and industrial-size refrigerators.
This sell-off seems to signal a new effort to ease Twitter’s losses at a time when the company has lost much of its advertisers to Elon Musk’s tumultuous purchase of the company, which has become a series of of lurches on the policy of content of the network.
According to Forbes, the businessman would have lost around 182,000 million dollars since November 2021 -which has made him break a world record for losses-; That same November, he came to write in a tweet that Twitter was asking for 4 million dollars a day.
