MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's Free Speech Social Media Site Set to Launch Monday
'And we are going to get our voice of free speech out there'
MyPillow’s Mike Lindell said that his new social media platform called “Frank” would launch on April 19.
Lindell said in a video statement he had taken steps to make sure the site is most secure with his own servers.
He also said the platform would not be subject to censorship on the whims of big tech companies.
“And we are going to get our voice of free speech out there,” Lindell said.
“On Monday morning at 9 a.m., we’re going to have the biggest launch. … I call it a Frank-a-thon.”
“I’m going to be on there live all day long."
"It’s like a YouTube Twitter combination; you’ve never seen anything like it,” Lindell said of his new project.
“You’re not going to have to worry about what you’re saying and worry about being able to speak out freely.”
Lindell's exceptions for free speech on the platform speech are violence and using foul language, which will not be permitted.
“You don’t get to use the four swear words—the C-word, the N-word, the F-word, or God’s name in vain. Free speech is not pornography; free speech isn’t ‘I’m going to kill you,'” he said.
Twitter and Facebook have censored many conservatives since Trump exited office earleir this year.
According to a Pew 2020 survey, most Americans think social media sites censor users based on political viewpoints.
The survey fund conservatives trust social media companies much less than liberals do when it comes to fact-checking.
Earleir this month, Lindell said his site would 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.
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."
