Now that Elon Musk’s plan to rebrand Twitter to X is in movement, the corporate is trying to promote a bunch of stuff tied to its earlier picture in what looks like a comically unhinged property sale. A whole bunch of things from X’s San Francisco headquarters can be available for purchase through an online auction subsequent month that’s working from September twelfth to 14th.
All the things at present has a gap bid set at $25 so there’s the potential to seize some actual bargains right here. Many of the listings are for the type of workplace gear you’d anticipate from a giant company, like desks, printers, and laptop computer docking stations. A number of of the tons being marketed — akin to soundproof office booths and designer chairs — had been additionally listed in an auction back in January. There’s loads of new stuff up for grabs although, and a few of it toes the road between tragic and downright amusing.
Listed here are a few of our favourite listings from the Twitter Rebranding public sale:
Playfully dubbed “The Lodge,” this 20 x 20-foot seating sales space options 4 tables and L-shaped benches. The sales space was apparently reconstructed from a Montana barn, and may now be yours for as little as $25 (so long as no one else bids on it!).
An ideal present for any tremendous fan I’m certain. This 13-foot lengthy mural makes use of screenshots of superstar tweets paying tribute to Robin Williams to kind a mosaic of the beloved comic.
Right here’s your probability to personal a singular collector’s merchandise or two. Now that X is de-feathering its model, these bird-themed props may discover refuge in your house as a substitute. Most of those are ornamental indicators or wall artwork, however there’s additionally a horny picket espresso desk or a “Larry art boulder” for many who can spare the room. If that’s not iconic sufficient although…
Yep, you’ll be able to take house the Twitter emblem constructing fascias positioned on 10th street and Jessie road. By which I imply, you actually have to take them. A be aware on these listings discloses that these indicators are nonetheless mounted on the facet of X’s HQ, and that the customer can be accountable for “hiring an SF Licensed Firm with acceptable permits” to take away them. It’s evidently too much hassle for Musk to rearrange himself.
Fairly self-explanatory. I can’t think about their new houses can have as a lot historical past with these symbols as Twitter did, however maybe there’s a boujiee web cafe someplace that may make good use of them.
An agamograph (for these unaware) is a sort of picture that adjustments relying on what angle you view it from. On this instance, the piece shifts from a wide-eyed emoji, to the query “What’s Occurring?” — one thing I’m certain the remaining legacy workers at X have been asking themselves for months.
Such an uncommon assertion piece wants one thing on par to enhance it…
Okay, actually that is type of cute. Right here’s hoping somebody buys it for his or her cottage-core-loving girlfriend or one thing so it doesn’t find yourself within the trash.
There are virtually 100 particular person listings for Google’s 55-inch interactive whiteboard, most of that are apparently model new and nonetheless of their unique packaging. If you wish to purchase one from Google immediately it’ll set you again virtually $5,000 so the $25 beginning bid on these could be extra palatable. It’s a bit miserable to think about that each one these Google Jamboards have simply been gathering mud contemplating they’re such a hefty funding.
