Twitter explains why it banned Rose McGowan

Share

McGowan's ban raised the ire of several users who pointed out that Twitter allowed tweets from white supremacists and even highly controversial tweets from the U.S. president to remain on its service.

On Wednesday night, she took to Instagram, writing: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

Actress Rose McGowan, who has been using her Twitter account to speak out against Hollywood production studio The Weinstein Company, has had her account temporarily disabled.

Though the tweets that resulted in her suspension weren't initially identified, Twitter clarified the issue to the Los Angeles Times.

Others on Twitter quickly rushed to her defense, noting how, more often than not, accounts that threaten even physical violence are allowed to stay. McGowan's Twitter account is still online. Costolo scrambled, ordering teams to delete offending accounts and tweets.

"I told the head of your studio that HW raped me", she wrote in a tweet to Amazon's CEO, using Weinstein's initials.

According to The New York Times article published last week, Weinstein had reached at least eight settlements over inappropriate behaviour with women, including McGowan. Twitter has since told The Guardian the suspension was due to McGowan tweeting a private phone number, which is against Twitter's terms of service. "The other's an actress who spoke about sexual assault".

Bezos has not responded on Twitter and multiple Amazon spokespeople did not immediately respond to requests for comment. "Suspend me too, please".

Meanwhile, fellow actresses Jessica Chastain and Academy Award victor Patricia Arquette snapped back at Twitter.

While McGowan hasn't spoken out directly about the alleged abuse she received, she has been very vocal on the social networking site, claiming she was targeted by a "monster".

McGowan has been calling out celebrities and industry insiders including Affleck in Twitter messages accusing them of covering for Weinstein for years. "We stand with the courageous women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices", Twitter tweeted.
