iPhones With The Old Twitter Icon Are Going For As Much As $25,000!

Last week, Twitter changed its name to X, which merely means that owners of Android phones and iPhones will ultimately need to upgrade their apps to receive the new updates. However, some iPhone models that still display the previous Twitter logo, which features a bird, are being "cashed in" as collectibles because some of these gadgets fetch thousands of dollars at internet shops. If you thought the asking price for one version in particular, which was advertised at $25,000, was ridiculous, keep in mind that people have occasionally paid far more in the past.

Owners of iPhones were given access to the updated version of X via an Apple App Store update. While it would be wise to adapt to these new developments and get the most cutting-edge features, some people are standing still. Instead, they are taking advantage of the chance to list their iPhones on eBay at exorbitant prices while still utilizing the old Twitter logo. Supercharged notes that when the well-known game Flappy Bird was taken down from the App Store and Google Play Store due to its addiction, a similar technique was noticed.

As it turned out, mobile devices with the game still installed began to be listed on online auction sites like eBay, with one example involving an iPhone 5 that was being offered for sale for $100,000. If you compare this situation to other ones, asking $25,000 to get an old Twitter logo on an iPhone is not an unreasonable request. However, the aforementioned iPhone 11 Pro Max item was taken down from eBay as of the time of writing "by the seller because there was an error in the listing," according to eBay. Although we are unsure whether the identical iPhone will be listed again, we will update our readers.

These are modest offerings compared to other listings, which cost between $800 and $1,000 and use the same old Twitter logo. The old Twitter logo is still visible; otherwise, the new one displays a large X with a black backdrop. It is possible that these iPhone owners intentionally selected to avoid app updates on their devices because the old Twitter logo is still visible.
