Twitter Suctions Off Memorabilia and Brings in Over 100K
Twitter Suctions Off Memorabilia and Brings in Over 100K

Twitter auctioned off many of its memorabilia, office supplies, furniture, and more this week. The auction ended on Wednesday morning and included its large bird logo statue that sold for $100,000.

When Elon Musk bought the platform for $44 billion, he later pointed out that the company was "in the fast lane to bankruptcy." He also began cutting back spending and laid off several employees. Other employees who weren't fond of Elon Musk and also who weren't comfortable with the new work required left the company. On Wednesday, The Information reported that Twitter's fourth-quarter revenue for 2022 had fallen around 35% from the previous year to $1.025 billion.

Although he's said the company is no longer speeding toward bankruptcy, Twitter is still aiming to save itself. After a reported 40% drop in ad revenue on Tuesday compared with the same day in 2022, Twitter recaptured advertisers with a new content deal. Twitter has also been working towards other solutions, including an annual option for its Twitter Blue subscription service.

Another solution was a report in January of auctioning off user handles to boost revenue. This week's auction was also another way the platform generated money. The auction included furniture such as chairs and couches to restaurant-grade appliances like the almost 300-pound coffee machine.

In December, Nick Dove, a representative of Heritage Global Partners, told Fortune Magazine that the auction had nothing to do with recouping the costs for the $44 billion purchase of the platform.

"If anyone genuinely thinks that the revenue from selling a couple computers and chairs will pay for the mountain there, then they're a moron," he said.

Along with the Twitter bird logo that sold for $100,000, a 6-foot planter in the shape of a commercial at symbol sold for almost $15,000. A custom reclaimed wood conference room table sold for close to $10,500, and a high-end La Marzocco Strada 3 espresso machine sold for almost $13,500. Twitter also sold a wide variety of meat-slicing machines, industrial-sized freezers, and several luxurious and high-end items such as high-end lounging sofa chairs.

At the time of this writing, auction administrator Heritage Global Partners hasn't yet published the auction's final results.

Although the sales of Twitter's memorabilia, industrial restaurant appliances and luxury furniture will not add up to $44 billion, it reveals that the items were prized enough for those willing to purchase them. The auction opened on January 17th and closed on January 18th.

We reached out to Rich and his team at Computer Geek in July 2021. We were in desperate need of help because our former website design agency left us hanging with major website issues that needed immediate attention. Rich and his team were extremely helpful and quick to come to our rescue! They have helped us with numerous projects that have helped our SEO. Our sales have increased 30% since coming to Computer Geek. We've been working with them for about nine months now and are very pleased with their response time and helpful manner. Rich has proven himself to be trustworthy and dependable. We feel valued as a customer and look forward to continuing a relationship with Computer Geek.

I would certainly like to recommend that anyone pursing maintenance for a website to contact The Computer Geek. I have been using another company to do some maintenance on my site with moderate success. There were issues that were evidently beyond what could be handled by them. However, the professionals at The Computer Geek had them addressed and rectified in no time at all. The Computer Geek approached all of my requests focusing on my goals and the needed performance. Then, once versed, presented me with a very reasonable price. Once the projects were in motion, I found that the tasks were achieved before I expected, with professional results. Also, in one instance where The Computer Geeks brought an issue to my attention that I would have likely overlooked. This was accompanied by a recommendation on how to solve the issue. Overall The Computer Geeks exceeded my expectations!

We discovered an issue with our Oscommerce cart processing images. It is about 14 years old and heavily modified. Looking on google for some expert help I found Rich and reached out to him. We received a response the same day. The next day his team was working on our issue and was able to solve it within a few hours. Price was reasonable and we are very appreciative to find a competent and professional oscommerce expert to help successfully troubleshoot our issue.

In trouble? Stop fretting and start typing in the chat box. You will be glad you did!
