MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell Permanently Suspended From Twitter

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Mike Lindell, the CEO of Minnesota-based company MyPillow, was suspended from Twitter Monday night. According to CBS News, it is a permanent suspension.

Lindell, whose company is headquartered in Chaska, has recently seen his products dropped by several major retailers due to his persistent support of conspiracy theories involving the presidential election, which he claims was stolen from former President Donald Trump.

Lindell appeared to bypass the suspension Tuesday afternoon, using MyPillow's Twitter account to post a tease for his Tuesday night appearance on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program, stating that the two will discuss "cancel culture."

The move is reminiscent of the former president's attempts to tweet from other associated accounts following his permanent suspension in the aftermath of the U.S. Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.

In one of Mr. Trump's last days in office, Lindell was seen leaving the White House, holding a visible note that suggested the replacement of CIA Director David Cohen.

He was also threatened last week with a major lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems, the company at the center of many of his election fraud claims.

Last month, Lindell called for martial law to be instituted in Minnesota in hopes of overturning the election. He has also mentioned on several occasions that he's considering a run for Minnesota governor.
