Twitter is investigating after a custom-made '@TwitterUK' fireplace was dumped by road

Twitter says it’s looking into a custom-made fireplace that was spotted dumped by the side of a road on the outskirts of London.

The company said it made several mock fireplaces for agencies last Christmas — but the fireplace dumped by the side of the road appears to be one that was displayed inside Twitter’s London office.

The fireplaces sent out to agencies included the Twitter usernames of each agency, while the flytipped one says “@TwitterUK”.

Twitter told Business Insider it’s going to get the flytipped fireplace collected “asap.”
