MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was permanently banned from Twitter late Monday night.
A spokesperson told CNN that the permanent suspension was a result of “repeated violations” of the company’s civic integrity policy, which was created just this month.
That policy states that Twitter cannot be used “for the purpose of manipulating or interfering in elections or other civic processes.”
“This includes posting or sharing content that may suppress participation or mislead people about when, where, or how to participate in a civic process. In addition, we may label and reduce the visibility of Tweets containing false or misleading information about civic processes in order to provide additional context,” says the policy.
Lindell has continued to push allegations that the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump through widespread voter fraud. Dominion Voting Systems, an election tech vendor, recently sent Lindell a cease and desist letter regarding his “patently false accusations that Dominion somehow rigged or otherwise improperly influenced” the election.
The letter warns that “litigation regarding these issues is imminent.” Attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell both face $1.3 billion defamation lawsuits filed against them by Dominion.
Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s and Wayfair stopped selling MyPillow products last week.
Meanwhile, Lindell has filed his own defamation lawsuit against the Daily Mail for its “bogus” allegation that he carried out an affair with “30 Rock” star Jane Krakowski.
