Twitter Permanently Suspends MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell
Twitter has pulled out and used their mighty ban hammer again.
Twitter has permanently banned MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell for "repeated violations" of its civic integrity policy. It's not clear what specific tweets got Lindell banned, but he has been a huge defender of former President Donald Trump and tweeted a lot about election fraud in the 2020 election.
Lindell has been very outspoken about politics and continued to tweet about what he thinks was a fraudulent election even after Biden was sworn in as the 46th President. Twitter's new civic integrity policy was enacted after the Capitol insurrection of January, 6th, 2021.
Being banned from Twitter is just the latest problem Lindell has gotten himself into because of his political views, earlier this month the CEO said that several retailers including Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl's, Wayfair and H-E-B have dropped MyPillow from their stores due to pressure carried out by "leftist groups" on social media.
Lindell is also facing a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over his and Trump's claim that their voting machines were rigged to favor Biden in the election. Lindell says he welcomes the lawsuit.
The MyPillow founder is rumored to be interested in politics himself, back in September, Jennifer Carnahan, the Chairwoman of the Minnesota GOP, tweeted out a photo of Lindell at a Trump event saying, "we are going to make him our next Governor."
