After a year-long ban on the platform, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell joined Twitter on Sunday, only to receive the boot again soon after.
At the Save America rally in Nebraska on Sunday, Lindell announced he had created a new Twitter account, which went live earlier in the day.
In his first tweet, Lindell asked his followers to let them know he was back.
“Hello everyone, I’M BACK ON TWITTER,” he wrote. “My only account is @MikeJLindell! Please RT and FOLLOW to SPREAD THE WORD.
With the video included to verify that the account was authentic, Lindell managed to gain almost 40,000 subscribers in just a few hours, by BizPac Review.
“Hello everyone on Twitter. This is Mike Lindell,” he said as he sat on a plane. “I’m here to tell you about my new account here, @MikeJLindell. It’s the only account here on Twitter that I use. All these others are fake accounts and they use my name there.
However, on Sunday evening, Twitter deleted the account and explained to Newsweek that Lindell had violated their rules on escaping the ban. Lindell’s original account had been permanently suspended in January 2021 due to “repeated violations of our civic integrity policy,” read a statement from Twitter.
