Twitter Suspends Rose McGowan After Calling Out Ben Affleck

Twitter Suspends Rose McGowan's Account

Twitter Suspends Rose McGowan's Account

To add to that suspicion, Twitter recently said that it would allow US President Donald Trump to threaten war and berate US citizens on its platform because it was of public interest - and users haven't missed the disparity.

Rose McGowan was one of the women who shared her story in The New York Times's initial report last week about the decades of sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein in 1997 after a hotel room incident at the Sundance Film Festival, and in recent days has been vociferous in her support of women who have stepped forward to reveal that the producer had sexually harassed them or worse.

News of the suspension caused a storm of protest on Twitter overnight.

While locked accounts are still accessible to other users, suspended accounts are typically not, even though they still exist on Twitter servers. Previously, in July of that year, Amazon Studios head Roy Price posted a photo with McGowan to his Twitter account.

In messages directed to Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos, she said: I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. His attorney at the time was Lisa Bloom, who was part of Weinstein's team before she dropped Weinstein in dramatic fashion over the weekend, as allegations of sexual assault broke. It contained the full email signature of the person sending it, including their phone number. In order to begin the 12-hour suspension, the message told her to delete tweets that violated the company's rules. "Asking for multiple victims of sexual violence", fellow actress Jessica Chastain wrote. "Twitter is a toilet and I don't want to be complicit anymore", Linehan tweeted. McGowan declined to comment for that story and she did not immediately respond to the Guardian's request for comment on Thursday.

"Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power", the statement continues. "We stand with the fearless women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices".
