Staunch Trump ally and CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, has been permanently banned from the social media platform Twitter for what that company’s spokesperson said were Lindell’s “repeated violations” of the social media company’s civic integrity policy.
The spokesperson for Twitter claimed Lindell used his account to propagate unsubstantiated claims about fraud in the presidential election.
Twitter implemented its new “civic integrity policy” last fall in an effort to clamp down on misinformation.

Twitter didn’t provide proof of Mr. Lindell’s policy violations. But he had advocated for election integrity and called out constitutional violations executed by several of the battleground states regarding their electoral college certifications using his personal account and the MyPillow corporate account in recent months.
Lindell has refused to embrace the false narrative that there was no malfeasance in the 2020 election.
Federal courts never adjudicated any case based on evidence provided that vote fraud, ballot tampering, or usurpations of constitutional mandates had taken place. Each time the courts relied on the malleable issue of “standing” to avoid hearing any argument supporting Election malfeasance.
Dominion Voting Systems – whose machines and software have proven to be less than secure by virtue of their own owner’s manual – has threatened Lindell with a lawsuit for alleging the company’s products stole “millions of votes.”

The cancel culture cabal pressured big retailers – including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s – to drop My Pillow’s products after Lindell made a trip to the White House to have private discussions with then-President Trump.
Twitter excommunicated Lindell less than three weeks after it banned and purged President Donald Trump from the platform, doing so while he was still the sitting President. The controversial decision has raised legitimate questions about the company’s power to censor elected officials.
