In a surprising twist, technology tycoon Elon Musk has unveiled an exceptional opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts. Items and artifacts from the former Twitter headquarters have emerged on the auction platform following the company’s recent rebranding as X.
Save the date for the highly anticipated auction event titled ‘Twitter Rebranding: Online Auction Featuring Memorabilia, Art, Office Assets & More!’ The bidding spectacle is set to kick off on September 12 and will run for a concise two-day period, as per reports.
The auction, organized by Heritage Global Partners, sets an accessible starting bid of just $25 for each lot. Among the 584 captivating pieces available for bidding, one can find an eclectic assortment, ranging from coffee tables to ornate bird cages and captivating oil paintings that once encapsulated viral sensations.
Further exploration of the auction reveals an intriguing assortment, encompassing desks, chairs, a DJ booth, and an impressive ensemble of musical instruments that could equip an entire band.
Notably, one of the listed Twitter signs remains affixed to the exterior of the company’s headquarters on 10th Street in San Francisco. The listing underscores the buyer’s responsibility to engage an SF Licensed Company with the necessary permits for the delicate task of removal and relocation.
Art enthusiasts will find added allure in two captivating oil paintings, each capturing iconic moments. The first portrays Ellen Degeneres’ star-studded selfie from the 2014 Academy Awards, an image etched into pop culture history. The second artwork immortalizes the momentous image shared by former US President Barack Obama following his re-election in November 2012. This image amassed an unprecedented number of likes, solidifying its status as a symbol of an impactful era.
For those with an eye for unique treasures, this event offers a chance to own a tangible piece of Twitter’s legacy, thoughtfully curated and presented by the visionary Elon Musk. This endeavor echoes a similar initiative earlier this year, when Musk’s enterprise auctioned a range of items from its San Francisco headquarters, capturing widespread attention and admiration.
