Rose McGowan Twitter account gets 'temporarily locked'

Rose McGowan's Twitter Has Been Suspended And, Boy, People Are Mad

Twitter Suspends Rose McGowan's Account

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".

In the meantime, Twitter is on the back foot given both the extent of the allegations against Weinstein and the fierce reaction it has provoked in both Hollywood and around the world.

Actress Rose McGowan, after having her Twitter account temporarily suspended by the social-media service following a string of posts alleging cover-ups of Harvey Weinstein's treatment of women, said Thursday the movie producer raped her.

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.

Amazon Studios chief Roy Price has been suspended amid claims he "ignored" allegations Harvey Weinstein raped actress Rose McGowan.

McGowan added that Amazon Studios "called to say my show was dead" after she asked it "to do the right thing" over a tie-up with The Weinstein Company.


"Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power", the spokeswoman said. "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.

The New York Times earlier reported that McGowan was among the numerous women sexually harassed by Weinstein, who paid McGowan a financial settlement in 1997.

Weinstein, who was sacked Sunday from The Weinstein Company production house over allegations of sexual harassment and assault dating back decades, has denied sexually assaulting anyone. We have contacted the actress and will update this story if she or her team responds.

When the interview was finished, Masse said, Weinstein hugged her tight and said, "I love you".

NY detectives already investigated Weinstein once, in 2015, when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room.

After McGowan turned to Instagram, it seemed to many that Twitter was silencing voices against oppression or, at best, again enforcing its anti-harassment policies inconsistently.
