Rose McGowan's Temporary Twitter Lock-Out Inspires #WomenBoycottTwitter Movement

She also posted an apparent notice from Twitter that read: "We have determined that this account violated the Twitter rules, so we've temporarily limited some of your account features".

Weinstein was sacked by his company after the claims against him first surfaced and has been left by his wife, British designer Georgina Chapman.

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. "BE MY VOICE", McGowan wrote on her Instagram page, shortly after midnight ET.

"Twitter has suspended me", McGowan wrote in all caps.

The actor Rose McGowan has alleged that Harvey Weinstein raped her and that Amazon Studios ignored her complaints and dropped her show after she spoke up. "We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future", the tweeted statement read. In other tweets McGowan listed the names of the Weinstein Company board, demanding their resignation.

The account's Facebook page was removed from the site, according to CNN , after it was found to have been linked to the IRA. If you want to know more about the Don't Shoot Us troll campaign, be sure to read the entire piece over on CNN .

In a New York Times article published last week, it was revealed McGowan was part of a settlement with Weinstein in 1997 following an encounter in a hotel room with the executive producer during the Sundance Film Festival.

McGowan responded to Affleck's claim this week that sexual assault allegations against Weinstein made him "sick" by accusing her former co-star of knowing about the producer's behaviour for years. In an on-the-record, on-camera interview, McGowan repeatedly said Weinstein raped her, the sources said. "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". McGowan's Twitter account is still online.

She immediately took to Instagram to denounce the freeze: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

Many have called Twitter's harassment rules and enforcement arbitrary because they allow President Trump to blast senators with taunts like "Liddle Corker" or call Mika Brzezinski "Low I.Q. Crazy Mika".

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey then linked to the official statement from his personal Twitter account, noting: "We need to be a lot more transparent in our actions in order to build trust".
