Mike Lindell Announces Release Date for Alternative Social Media Site ‘Frank’
By Movieguide® Staff
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell revealed that his new social media platform, previously announced as Vocl, now has a new name and is set to release in the next seven days.
Lindell announced his idea for a social media platform, now called Frank, which he claims will allow users to speak freely without fear of censorship. Currently, the domain name frankspeech.com takes visitors to a static page.
“Coming next week… a social media platform like no other!” Lindell announced.
Lindell said that Frank is an alternative to Twitter, which he claims unlawfully censors free speech. Twitter suspended Lindell’s account after the company accused the businessman of spreading misinformation about the 2020 election.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell announced plans to create a new social media platform, Vocl, to preserve free speech.
“Every single influencer person on the planet can come there. You’re going to have a platform to speak out,” Lindell told Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk. “It’s not just like a little Twitter platform.”
He continued: “It’s not like anything you’ve ever seen. It’s all about being able to be vocal again and not to be walking on eggshells.”
Lindell understands first-hand social media censorship. Twitter and YouTube banned the avid supporter of former President Donald Trump after he expressed his view that the 2020 election was fraudulent.

The new platform, according to Lindell, will combine aspects from YouTube, Twitter, and other forums while protecting free speech.
In an interview on former Donald Trump adviser Steve Bannon’s “War Room Pandemic” podcast, Lindell said that Frank would be self-hosted, protecting it from Big Tech’s potential takedowns.
“None of these guys are going to be able to take this down. We’re gonna all come over there. All the influencers… all these people that can’t say on their podcasts the word ‘Dominion,’ or they can’t say ‘vaccine, a vaccine is bad for you,'” Lindell said. “They are going to be able to speak out and speak freely and it’s going to be amazing. The voices of hundreds of millions of people are going to be heard.”
Further details on Lindell’s social media have yet to be released.
