Mike Lindell Says His New Social Media Platform Could Handle Over a Billion People
'It’s going to be the safest, secure platform'
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell touted his new social media platform's capabilities this week, saying it could handle upwards of a billion users.
“I believe it will handle upwards of a billion," Lindell said.
"If it doesn’t, we will get to that capacity."
"I don’t think that’s exaggerated, by any means,” Lindell added.
“It’s going to be the safest, secure platform. I built it expecting to be attacked."
The Conservative CEO's platform will be called Frank, which already had a landing page.
Lindell said the current plan is to launch as soon as April 5.
“The only reason for the delay is, I actually added six more servers in another location," he said.
"I really want redundancy, so I’ve got three different U.S. locations and another hidden one."
"So I’ve got—if anybody went out there to physically damage my stuff, I wanted a fourth location, so that was very important to me,” Lindell added.
Frank has been dubbed as a combination of YouTube and Twitter.
At the helm of the platform is the idea of free speech.
Earlier this month, Lindell revealed the platform had 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."
This year, Tech giant Twitter permanently banned Lindell due to violations of the platform’s “civic integrity policy."
A spokesperson for Twitter said at the time the ban on Lindell's account was due to violations of the platform’s “civic integrity policy."
According to projections, Frank will draw tens of millions of users in the first week, according to Lindell.
“I put in all my money. I’m not out to make money. Right now, I’m out to get the word out for free speech," Lindell said.
"I want people to go out there, all these influencers, and talk about” election fraud claims, Lindell said.
The MyPillow CEO said when people sign up, they will automatically follow every influencer but will have the option to unfollow.
“If they like it, they’ll stick with you. If they don’t, they’ll just unsubscribe,” Lindell said.
