The MyPillow founder’s return comes after Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought Twitter last week for $44 billion.
When Lindell made his new account, he tweeted out to inform everyone of his return. “Hello everybody, I’M BACK ON TWITTER,” Lindell tweeted. He also warned his followers to watch out for impersonators and encouraged them to spread the word about his new account.
During his brief time on Twitter, the MyPillow CEO’s account skyrocketed with followers — Lindell attracted over 35,000 before being shut down.
Lindell has been a supporter of Trump since 2016 and has frequently met with the former president throughout the years. The CEO said in a Liberty University speech that meeting Trump was a “divine appointment.” He later supported Trump in attempting to overturn the 2020 election.
