“Thanks Elon Musk”: MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is back on Twitter

Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, has returned to Twitter after some more blocked accounts were reinstated.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell called his return to Twitter a “historic day” for the United States. He seemed to repeat claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from former President Donald Trump.

In the White House on Friday, Lindell spoke with former Trump adviser Stévène Bannon.

He said that January 7 and 8, 2021, were “some of the two most crucial days in the history of our nation” and that 1.2 million Americans had been “de-platformed” or “suppressed” across a variety of social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

We triumphed against that, at which point Lindell said, “Today is a monumental day for me and for the nation because we are regaining our voice.”

Additionally, Lindell seemed to imply that former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and META CEO Mark Zuckerberg may serve jail time for repeating comments they made in a tweet they sent on Friday about turning voting machines into prison bars.

“I believe a lot of people are going to jail,” says Lindell. I mean, this is a crime against our country. This crime has been committed against everyone. They are attempting to take over our country.

Lindell used his return to Twitter on Friday to take revenge on electronic voting machines. MyPillow’s CEO has voiced harsh criticism of voting machines since the 2020 presidential election and repeatedly asserted unfounded assertions that Trump was the victim of election fraud.

I’ve come back! Thank you, @elonmusk, and by the way, melting down the electronic voting machines will make them into prison bars! On Friday, Lindell wrote on Twitter.

Lindell was permitted to return to the social media site along with a number of other people who had previously been suspended. Trump’s account was reinstated as well, but he hasn’t used it yet. Instead, he has continued to publish on his own Truth Social site.

According to Newsweek, Twitter has been questioned about Lindell’s return to the service.

The former resident was finally able to access his account on November 19; as a result, he added a significant number of new followers. Trump used to tweet often, celebrating his own achievements and criticizing those of his opponents.

Both Lindell and Bannon are scheduled to speak at the four-day American First conference, which will begin on Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona, and include Donald Trump Jr.

The event takes place in the wake of the most recent controversy with the NFT collection, which the former resident launched on Thursday and sold out in less than a day. Bannon suggested on Friday that the person who recommended to Trump that the NFT trading cards be produced be fired.

Who is Mike Lindel?

Mike Lindell, an entrepreneur and “My Pillow Guy,” My Pillow was founded by Lindell.

He backed Donald Trump while he was president. After Donald Trump was defeated in the 2020 presidential election, he began to disseminate bogus conspiracy theories about electoral fraud in that election. Since then, he has actively promoted oleandrin, a poisonous plant extract.

Mike Lindell’s net worth is predicted to be $50 million as of December 2022.

My Pillow was created in 2004 by Lindell, who also helped the firm expand into a significant manufacturer. Later, My Pillow’s affiliation with the Better Business Bureau was canceled.

Lindell began giving to charities like Union Gospel and the Salvation Army. He believed it would be a fantastic idea to start his own non-profit organization helping recovering addicts since he was an addict growing up. As a consequence, he established the Lindell Foundation.

In 2019, he set up the Lindell Recovery Network, a way for former drug addicts to get in touch with each other.

Since this year, major merchants have discontinued stocking My Pillow items. That, according to Lindell’s reasoning, was the impact of his predictions for the 2020 American presidential election. In 2020, Lindell made his son the CEO of the business.

A social media site that Lindell characterized as looking like a cross between Youtube and Twitter was rumored by the media to be being launched in March of this year.Its name is “Vocl.”

Due to a disagreement with a business that had created a website named Vocal, Lindell eventually changed the name to Frank. He worked on Frank for a total of four years.

In January 2021, Lindell’s Twitter account was permanently blocked for perpetuating the false narrative that Donald Trump had won the 2020 U.S. presidential election. In a statement at the time, Twitter said that it banned Lindell because he had “repeatedly broken” the civic integrity rule.

Even after Joe Biden’s government as president of the United States took office, Lindell, a Trump supporter, kept up his insistence that the presidential elections were rigged.

Lindell, who made the statement on an internet program run by a former advisor to President Trump named Steve Bannon, said in an interview with CBS News that he was dissatisfied with the actions of the party in the elections that took place in 2018, 2020, and 2022—elections in which the Republican Party lost to preserve or recover control of both chambers of the national legislature.
