Mike Lindell Launching His Own Social Media Platform to Replace YouTube and Twitter
'People will be able to talk and not walk on eggshells'
MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell is developing his own "free speech" social media platform that would become a new home to those banned from establishment tech platforms like Youtube and Twitter.
Lindell announced his plans during an interview with Charlie Kirk on his podcast Friday.
"We're launching this big platform so all the voices of our country can come back and start telling it like it is again," said Lindell.
"You will not need YouTube," he stated.
"You won't need these places. So it will be where everything can be told because we've got to get our voices back," he explained.
"People will be able to talk and not walk on eggshells."
Lindell added the platform has been developing for four years and that it was going to be broader than Twitter.
"Every single influencer person on the planet can come there."
"You're going to have a platform to speak out," he said.
"It's not just like a little Twitter platform."
Earlier this year, Tech giant Twitter permanently banned Lindell due to violations of the platform’s “civic integrity policy."
A spokesperson for Twitter said the ban on Lindell's account was due to violations of the platform’s “civic integrity policy."
The reason for the ban is the same Twitter used to ban President Trump and many of his high-profile supporters and conservatives.
"Jack Dorsey is trying to cancel me (Mike Lindell) out! We are extremely busy and hiring as fast as we can to handle all the shipping! Jack will be found out and should be put in prison when all is revealed!" he tweeted.
Dominion Voting Systems are suing Lindell for $1.3 Billion after he challenged them to put up their lawsuit earlier this year because he had "100% evidence that China and other countries used their machines to steal the election."
The lawsuit against Lindelll claims:
“MyPillow’s defamatory marketing campaign – with promo codes like ‘FightforTrump,’ ‘45’, ‘Proof,’ and ‘QAnon’ – has increased MyPillow sales by 30-40 percent and continues duping people into redirecting their election-lie outrage into pillow purchases."
