Mike Lindell tested the Twitter waters on May 1, only to find them still infested with liberal-censorship sharks.
The MyPillow CEO briefly rejoined the platform with the familiar blue bird logo, now synonymous with leftist hatred for free speech, over a year after he was banned for daring to talk about the irregularities of the 2020 presidential election.
Four hours later, the Twitter administration had suspended him again.
After the first ban, in 2021, the social media company said Lindell violated its “civic integrity policy,” implemented in September 2020 allegedly to fight disinformation online.
The company seemed oblivious to the fact that “disinformation” is in the eye of the beholder, and that much legitimate information can be lumped into that category by those who wish to conceal it.
Lindell’s grand re-entry followed news that Tesla CEO Elon Musk was taking over control of the company. Lindell created a new account on May 1, posting: “Hello everybody, I’M BACK ON TWITTER. My only account is @MikeJLindell! Please RT and FOLLOW to SPREAD THE WORD.”
The tweet also included a video of Lindell apparently on a private jet, warning his fans about impersonators, according to Newsweek.
“Please share it with everyone you know. Let everybody you know – so we can get the word out over here at Twitter in case they do take it down. And thanks a lot for helping out.”
The amazing thing is that within five minutes Lindell had 20,000 followers, Newsweek reported. Before his account was once again removed four hours later, he had amassed 37,000.
Lots of users seemed unbothered by the “disinformation” label.
As the coverage ramped up, though, Twitter proved it still has repressive liberal rear ends sitting in its chairs. Lindell’s popular new account was suspended for violating the platform’s rules on ban evasion.
