Just a week after permanently suspending Mike Lindell from its platform, Twitter has now suspended the account of his company, MyPillow.
The @MyPillowUSA account has been suspended for violating Twitter rules, though what rules it has broken has not yet been made clear, with the news just breaking shortly after 5 p.m.
Lindell himself was suspended for "repeated violations" of Twitter's "Civic Integrity Policy," which came after he repeatedly shared conspiracy theories and baseless claims that the Nov. 3 presidential election was "stolen" from former President Donald Trump, promoting the lie that led to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S Capitol
CNN's Donie O'Sullivan reports it has been suspended due to "ban evasion," with the platform saying the account has been used in recent days by Lindell.
Over the past week, the corporate account has been used to, among other things, promote Lindell's appearance on Fox News' Tucker Carlson's show "regarding cancel culture," during which he once again raged against the voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems.
It also appears to have been used by Lindell to criticize Twitter on Sunday, and also repeat the claim about election fraud.
In another sign that Lindell's political views have been having an impact on the company he owns, BMTN reported how the MyPillow website accepted "Qanon" and "Q" among its coupon codes, a reference to the extremist conspiracy cult.
Lindell also said that retailers including Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl's have dropped MyPillow products because of his continued promotion of the election fraud claims.
The Chaska-based company employs an estimated 1,500 people in Minnesota, and though it laid off 150 workers at its Shakopee plant in 2019, it was advertising for new hires in a full-page ad in the Star Tribune on Monday.
