Twitter suspends account of Weinstein critic Rose McGowan

Twitter suspends account of Weinstein critic Rose McGowan

"In solidarity w @rosemcgowan and all the victims of hate and harassment, Twitter fails to support".

Actress Rose McGowan had her Twitter account temporarily suspended; Twitter said this was because one of her Tweets included someone's non-public phone number.

The "Charmed" actress turned to Instagram after learning of her suspension, sharing an image of Twitter's notification of suspension and lodging a plea to her followers.

Twitter also played a role in the recent controversy over ESPN reporter Jemele Hill, who was suspended from her job for violating ESPN's social media guidelines a second time with her tweets about National Football League protests. The social network's lack of transparency has led to a great deal of frustration and confusion.

McGowan has accused Weinstein of rape, but the film producer denies any sexual assaults.

Since the allegations against Weinstein came to light, McGowan has called out many other Hollywood insiders, including Ben Affleck. She was suspended from sending tweets, retweets and liking messages, though her account remained visible to users.

"Calling white women allies to recognize conflict of #WomenBoycottTwitter for women of color who haven't received support on similar issues", she wrote. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future.

McGowan tweeted the call for #WomenBoycottTwitter on Thursday night, saying, "At midnight we RISE". "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power".

It isn't just women who are joining the boycott.

Twitter didn't respond to a request for comment. "I said I was proof", she claimed.

McGowan was identified in a New York Times article last week as receiving a financial settlement from Weinstein over an encounter with the producer at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.
