The company Twitter account for MyPillow was suspended on Monday after its founder and CEO, Mike Lindell, used it to evade his own ban from the social-media platform.

Lindell was permanently barred from Twitter last week for violating the platform’s civic-integrity policy. The MyPillow CEO, a friend of former President Donald Trump’s, had tweeted election-related conspiracy theories.

On Monday afternoon, Lindell posted several tweets from the MyPillow account. Some targeted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, falsely accusing him of being involved in fraud during the 2020 election.
