Twitter suspends Rose McGowan's account after Ben Affleck tweets

McGowan posted a screenshot of her suspension on Instagram

Rose McGowan's Twitter account has been suspended for violating Twitter's rules, McGowan says in an Instagram post. But on Thursday, for the first time, McGowan outright claimed via Twitter that "HW raped me".

Rose McGowan called on her "Rose army" to help her spread her messages once Twitter suspended her account.

McGowan had been unrelenting in her advocacy since last week's New York Times article detailing decades of sexual harassment allegations against Weinstein.

In subsequent tweets, McGowan appeared to suggest that Amazon Studios, which is overseen by Roy Price, previously dropped a project penned by McGowan after she insisted Weinstein not be involved.

It's not clear what script McGowan is referring to, but in September 2016 she told an audience at a film festival in Brooklyn: "I just sold my show to Amazon, that I wrote and [will direct]". "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". She added in the caption, "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

She then posted a screengrab of the apparent message she was sent by Twitter, it read: 'We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules, so we've temporarily limited some of your account features.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office, which shares a records system with Park City Police, had no reports or calls involving Weinstein or McGowan in the past 30 years, sheriff's spokesman Lt. Andrew Wright said.

After hours of silence, Twitter has finally issued a response.

Weinstein was forced out of his company after several women came forward alleging he had harassed them and acted inappropriately.

Twitter was sharply criticized for the banning of McGowan's account, with many users accusing the website of taking Weinstein's side.

Using the hashtag #WomenBoycottTwitter, female Twitter users (along with many male ones) announced that they would stay off the platform tomorrow in solidarity with McGowan.

A Twitter spokesperson said only, "We don't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons".

However, Twitter defended the decision not to impose penalties for the tweet because of factors like "newsworthiness" and "public interest".
