Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow, was banned from Twitter three hours after returning to Twitter following his ban in 2021

Lindell was banned by Twitter in 2021 for election misinformation, but he rejoined Twitter on Sunday.

Twitter banned the account quickly for violating its ban evasion policy.

"Jack Dorsey should go first to prison!" Lindell spoke to Insider via text.

After making a return on Twitter, Mike Lindell, CEO of MyPillow was expelled from Twitter.

Lindell was banned from Twitter in January 2021 as a supporter for former President Donald Trump. He spread misinformation about the 2020 election.

He posted to a new account on Sunday afternoon announcing his return.

"Hello everybody, I'M BACK ON TWITTER. My only account is @MikeJLindell "Please RT and FOLLOW TO SPREAD THE WORD," Lindell stated in a tweet. Insider's Bethany Biron reported.

A video of Lindell was also included in the tweet, confirming that it was his account.

He said that all the other accounts are fake and that they have been using my name on social media. So, he created this account. Please share this with everyone you know. Let everybody know. Thank you so much for your assistance.

The account was closed approximately three and a quarter hours later.

Insider was told by a spokesperson for Twitter that the account had been permanently suspended due to violating ban evasion rules.

Twitter's ban-evasion policy forbids anyone trying to evade an existing ban.

Lindell was banned initially from Twitter because he violated the platform's rules regarding misinformation and its civic integrity policy. This policy prohibits you sharing misleading or false information about voting or election outcomes.

Lindell stated that Insider Twitter didn't give him a reason, but that it was a shame.

Lindell stated, in reference to his own efforts to block voting machines from being used in US elections. "Jack Dorsey needs to be the first in line to prison!"

Jack Dorsey, the Twitter founder and CEO, resigned in November. Dorsey remains on Twitter's board, but he has indicated that he will be leaving when his term ends in May.

Lindell stated that he joined Twitter because other people were creating fake accounts pretending he was them.

Lindell stated that he created the Twitter account to inform the public that none of the fake Mike Lindell Twitter accounts are mine. He also said that he was still using Frank Social, his social media platform.

After Twitter announced Monday that Elon Musk had purchased the platform in a $44 Billion deal, his attempt to rejoin it was unsuccessful.

The billionaire SpaceX and Tesla billionaire said that he was interested in encouraging "free speech" on Twitter, prompting speculation about possible changes to Twitter's content moderation policies.

According to sources, Musk was dismayed by Trump's ban on Twitter. However, the ex-president previously stated that he doesn't plan to return to Twitter even if Musk becomes president.

Trump said that he hoped Elon would buy Twitter, as he will make improvements to the platform and is a good person, but he was referring to TRUTH on Fox News.
