First, the pillow. Then the sheets. Then the blankets, mattress toppers, and autobiography, all of which he heavily promotes on TV. The “he” of course is MyPillow founder and CEO, Mike Lindell. Now, after being suspended from Twitter in January, Lindell recently told conservative activist Charlie Kirk he’s launching his own social media company.
Lindell told the Turning Point USA founder and Fox News contributor that not one single person would be barred from using his social media platform, which he said he’s been working on for years, as reported by the Daily Caller.
Lindell told Kirk his site, which he claims will rival Twitter and Youtube, will be launched within weeks. “It’s not like just a little Twitter platform,” he said.
“What we’re going to do, it’s going to take four or five weeks, were going to have this platform coming out that all the influencers in this country will be able to go to and not worry about YouTube and actually be able to talk.
“So what we’re doing, we’re launching this big platform, so all the voices of our country can come back and start telling it like it is again.
“Every single influencer person on the planet can come there. You’re going to have a platform to speak out. It’s not just like a little Twitter platform.”
The question is, will it really happen, and on what scale will it be if it does?
MyPillow Guy Says He’s Forming Own Social Media Platform Following Suspension by Twitter

Lindell was kicked off Twitter in January “due to repeated violations of” Twitter’s “Civic Integrity Policy.” No matter. During the podcast, he ran through a litany of allegations about the presidential election. While many of Lindell’s claims have been refuted by courts and — and common sense — he told Kirk “perpetrators of the fraud are facing jail time.”
“There will be a big surprise of evidence. There’s going to be, I’ll tell you this, there’s going to be whistleblowers, there’s going to be people that work within organizations that are going to come forward, so they don’t get longer prison sentences.”
In some cases, “yuuge” jail time — unless the “criminals” “reach out” — to him.
“I will tell everyone out there right now if you want to reach out to me, you probably should, if you’re one of the criminals, because maybe you can work out a deal, so you don’t the longest sentences. It’s kinda like back to the old mafia days.”
“This is going to be so broad, and just explode,” Lindell added, before advising Georgia Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, also a Republican, to “run for the hills” in the hopes of avoiding prison. No word if Kemp and Raffensperger have taken MyPillow Guy’s advice.
Lindell’s remarks Friday came in the aftermath of having his mic cut off during a CPAC interview as he pushed wild conspiracy theories about COVID and virus vaccines.
