Mike Lindell was on cloud nine when Donald Trump was President. The pillow magnate saw his commercials be among the only ones aired on Fox News. And Trump treated him like a legitimate businessman. At one point, the former President even had Lindell appear at a COVID-19 press conference.And once Trump lost the presidency, Lindell was willing to do or say anything to help him get it back. The pillow guy has been named in massive lawsuits from voting machine companies. His symbiotic relationship with Fox News has been damaged. And Lindell was banned from Twitter for pushing election conspiracies.
Like many Conservatives, Lindell thought that Elon Musk’s looming purchase of Twitter would allow him to get back on the website. He had a rude awakening on Monday, however, when he attempted to create a new account.
Lindell created an account and posted on the video. He pleaded with followers, “please share with everyone you know, let everybody you know, so we can get the word out at Twitter in case they do take it down. Thanks a lot for helping out.”
Just like he thought the Supreme Court was going to watch his show and reinstate Trump, Lindell thought Elon Musk would intervene today to save his new account. Didn’t work out. Yet. pic.twitter.com/Z78ahnytY7

It didn’t take long, however, for Lindell’s hopes to be dashed. While his newly forced account quickly gained nearly 25,000 followers, the social media giant had shut it down by the end of the day.
