The statue of  platform’s famous bird logo has claimed the most expensive item sold, coming in at $100,000 (£81,000).

Viewers noted that some of the used items were no bargain, as they were selling for more than retail.

Twitter sold a high end La Marzocco Strada 3 espresso machine, retail $30,000, for around $13,500.

The sale comes as Elon Musk cuts costs at Twitter following his $44bn purchase of the company last year.

Since taking over in late October, Elon Musk has laid off around half of the company’s 7,500 staff.

Elon Musk has also ended many of Twitter’s perks, such as free meals.

Elon Musk tweeted in  the month of November that the company had seen a “massive drop in revenue” following the departure of several advertisers.
