One of former President Donald Trump’s biggest supporters, and biggest believers that the election was stolen from Trump, has also been permanently banned from Twitter.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has continued to push forward his beliefs of rampant voter fraud, without being able to lean on any sort of definitive evidence, and in Twitter’s world that is called “repeated violations” of their civic integrity policy, which they put in place this past September to try to limit disinformation being spread on their platform. On Tuesday they gave him the lifelong ban.
Lindell might want to consider a different strategy in his social media communication. Not only is he banned from Twitter, but major retailers have told him to take a hike too, and no longer carrying his MyPillow line of products. Bed Bath & Beyond, J.C. Penny and Kohl’s have kicked him out of their stores, while Costco has not taken that firm of action yet.
There’s more looming issues for Lindell too. He is facing possible litigation from Dominion Voting Systems for making claims that their voting machines were behind much of the voter fraud.
Since the riots at the Capitol building on January 6, Twitter has banned over 70,000 accounts for sharing misinformation.
