Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, an outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump, was banned from Twitter on Monday evening for violating the social media platform’s “Civic Integrity Policy”.
Lindell banned from Twitter
Lindell has reportedly been speaking out in recent weeks on an investigation into the results of the 2020 presidential election.
“The account you referred has been permanently suspended due to repeated violations of our Civic Integrity Policy,” a Twitter spokesman told CNN.
The policy mentioned by Twitter states that the number of violations determines the level of suspension, from blocking an account for twelve hours to permanent suspension.
“You must not use the services of Twitter for the purpose of manipulation or interference in elections or other civil processes,” said Twitter earlier this month about this policy. CNN added that these processes include “political elections, censuses, and major referendums and electoral initiatives”.
Twitter did not disclose which of Lindell’s tweets banned him, but Forbes reported that the social media platform “actively used the policy to remove accounts that contained misinformation and conspiracy theories related to the post-election US presidential election [U.S.] Capitol Riots. “

“I just got off the phone with Bed Bath & Beyond. You’re dropping MyPillow, ”he said of the move. “I just hung up five minutes ago. Kohls, all these different places. These people don’t understand. You are scared. They were good partners. In fact, I told them, “You come back whenever you want.”
Kohls defended her decision to ditch MyPillow in a statement to USA Today.
“Kohl’s made the decision to leave the MyPillow brand,” said the retailer. “Customer demand for MyPillow has decreased. We will sell our current inventory and not buy any additional / future inventory from the brand. “
This came after Twitter and various other social media platforms permanently banned Trump after the Capitol riots earlier this month.
