MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell admitted over the weekend that he had created a new Twitter account despite a lifetime ban.

Lindell was banned early in 2021 for repeated violations of Twitter's "Civic Integrity Policy" after he lied about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

On Sunday, the MyPillow CEO said that he had rejoined the social media platform because there were other fake accounts using his name.

"Hello, everyone at Twitter, this is Mike Lindell," Lindell said in a tweeted video. "I'm here to tell you about my new account here @MikeJLindell. That's the only account over here at Twitter that I'm using. All those other ones are fake accounts and they've been using my name out there."

"So we started this account," he added. "Please share it with everybody you know. Let everybody you know so we can get the word out over here at Twitter in case they do take it down. And thanks a lot for helping out."

In April, it was revealed that Lindell sent text messages to former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows pushing for the administration to seize voting machines that he believed were responsible for stealing the 2020 election.

In a text message sent to Meadows on December 20th, 2020, Lindell enthusiastically endorsed the conspiracy theories about Dominion Voting Systems machines espoused by attorney Sidney Powell, and he encouraged Meadows and the former president to take action.

"We have to get the machines and everything we already have proves the President won by millions of votes!" Lindell falsely claimed. "I have read and not validated yet that you and others talked him out of seizing them... if true... I pray it is part of a bigger plan."
