iPhones still sporting the old Twitter logo are going up for sale on eBay for thousands as part of the “X” rebrand.
Some people are concerned with renaming
The renaming to Twitter came as a surprise and surprised many users.
Elon Musk, CEO of X, said he wanted a fresh start for the social media platform with the new name and logo.
The old Twitter app is now officially “retired”.
This can make some people pay big bucks to go back to the original app.
An iPhone deal was spotted for a whopping $25,000.
another was Posted to X with someone asking $4200 for their iPhone 14 using the original Twitter app.
While others range from $800 to $15,000.
There have been several listings on eBay since Tuesday, but nothing has sold at a high price yet.
It’s unclear how many people will actually reach for the high-priced phones to get their hands on the original Twitter.
But savvy iPhone owners are willing to risk their luck.
