Inventor and CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell has been unbanned from Twitter following Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s decision to unban suspended accounts.

“Should Twitter offer a general amnesty to suspended accounts, provided that they have not broken the law or engaged in egregious spam?” Musk wrote in a Twitter poll last month.

The poll, which led to accounts being unsuspended in late November, had 72.4 percent of the 3,162,112 users responding “yes” while only 27.6% of users responded “no.”

Following the poll’s results, Musk tweeted the following: “The people have spoken. Amnesty begins next week. Vox Populi, Vox Dei.”

One of those suspended accounts was Mike Lindell, who was banned from the platform in January 2021. The MyPillow CEO was brought back to the platform again in May 2022, however, he was quickly permanently suspended after violating Twitter’s policies.

The suspension of his personal account, however, didn’t stop Lindell from using the corporate MyPillow account as a way to reach his followers. That account, however, was also banned by Twitter after it was found to be breaching the social media company’s policies, per Newsmax.


Following Musk’s takeover of the social media giant in October, however, Twitter fell under new management leading to accounts like former President Donald Trump and now Mike Lindell being unbanned.

“I’m back!!” the controversial Lindell wrote in his first Tweet back on the platform. “Thank you [Elon Musk] and by the way MELT DOWN THE ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES AND TURN THEM INTO PRISON BARS!” 

The MyPillow CEO has garnered a following after he became a close associate of former President Donald Trump and his ads for MyPillow plastered the airwaves of Fox News regularly.

Building off of his popularity, Lindell recently announced that he will run for the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee (RNC) to replace current RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel, according to Newsmax.

Lindell has once again been freed and will be able to reach his 552,000 followers once again. While unlikely to shift the race for the RNC chair, the re-establishment of his account is a welcome change to the Twitter platform as free speech becomes a priority.
