The Twitter account of Mike Lindell, the non-apologetic pro-Trump CEO of My Pillow, has been put to sleep - permanently.

Twitter suspended his account late Monday for repeatedly violating its policy on election misinformation, according to the social media site.

Lindell, who is a devout supporter of former U.S. President Donald Trump, financed post-election protest movements in an attempt to overturn the election win of President Joe Biden.

He has repeatedly used both his personal account, which had nearly half a million followers before being suspended, and the company's account to spread unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the November elections.

That is in complete violation of Twitter's civic integrity policy, a company spokesperson told Reuters in an emailed statement.

Lindell, whose political commentary and advertisements are a regular fixture on conservative media, is not alone.

Trump, impeached by the U.S. House, has been kicked off Twitter as well after his supporters stormed Capitol Hill on January 6th, resulting in five deaths.

Other social media outlets have silenced Trump and his supporters too.

Despite the riots and the deaths -- Lindell hasn't changed his tune...

He recently told Reuters regarding the election: "I'm never letting the fraud go."

Lindell's company - My Pillow - did not respond to a request for comment on the suspension of his account.
