Trump allies Roger Stone and Mike Lindell enjoy a brief return to Twitter before liberals report them and they’re banned again

Trump Allies Enjoy A Brief Return To Twitter But Banned After Liberals Report Them

In the week since Elon Musk apparently had finalized a deal to buy Twitter, conservatives on the social media platform suddenly saw big boosts in their follower accounts.

The speculation was that the lefties inside Twitter had started covering their tracks, trashing anything that showed why conservative accounts were suspended, shadow-banned, or suddenly, for no apparent reason, lost droves of followers.

One foil of the left promptly found himself back on Twitter on Sunday – only to be banished again.

According to The Blaze, Mike Lindell, a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump and CEO of the MyPillow company, messaged his return to his followers:

“Hello everybody, I’M BACK ON TWITTER. My only account is @MikeJLindell! Please RT and FOLLOW to SPREAD THE WORD,” Lindell tweeted Sunday afternoon as he was part of the crowd at Trump’s rally in Nebraska.

A tattletale named Zachary Petrizzo, a reporter for the left-wing news website The Daily Beast, acknowledged that he reported Lindell’s tweet to the gang on Twitter.

Petrizzo, showing that tolerance and fairness liberal journalists are known for, then applauded that Lindell “has been re-banned” from the platform. 

Twitter had banned Lindell again within two hours of his return.

Twitter permanently banned Lindell’s personal and company accounts in February 2021 after he questioned the legitimacy of some voting machines used in the 2020 election.

Lindell essentially claimed the machines were rigged to pull votes from Trump. Twitter called that “misinformation” and booted him. The company that made the machines has sued Lindell for defamation.

Lindell’s situation also occurred to another Trump ally, Roger Stone.

Last week, Stone announced on another social media platform, Telegram, “Well b—–s I’m back on Twitter. I’m anxious to see how strong Elon Musk’s commitment to free speech is.”

Unfortunately for him, Musk does not run Twitter yet. Petrizzo, in a piece for the Daily Beast, noted that Stone was banned again for attempting to sidestep Twitter’s “ban evasion” policy.

It’s unclear whether Petrizzo, apparently the social media hall monitor, reported him as well.

After being re-banned, Stone told the Daily Beast, “I posted a new account to prove a point. I look forward to whoever made the decision to suspend my account getting fired. Attn: Elon Musk.”

Many prominent conservatives who were booted from Twitter have said they will return once Musk takes over.

For his part, Trump has said he will not return and will instead stick with his own company, Truth Social.
