A total of 631 products were exhibited, including whiteboards ( analog and digital ), beer dispensers (Kegerator) , a large number of mice, keyboards , and masks .

Also, a bird-shaped neon sign , which can be said to be a symbol of Twitter, was bid for $ 22,500 (about 2.89 million yen).

More than 20,000 people have signed up to bid online, according to Ross Dove, chief executive of Heritage Global Partners, the auction site where the products were sold. He said that it was the most among the auctions, and analyzed that this popularity is probably due to the public's fascination with Twitter and Elon Musk. Mr. Dove estimates that the auction will bring Twitter about $ 1.5 million (about 200 million yen) in profit.

The auction comes amid aggressive cost-cutting and revenue-boosting efforts since Musk took over as CEO of Twitter in October. Kevin Weil, Twitter's former senior vice president of products, who learned of the auction, tweeted, 'It's strange to see Twitter office supplies up for auction. Great memories from a different time.' .
