So let me get this straight: Rose McGowan gets suspended but @twitter is fine with neo-nazis continuing to hate mob? McGowan posted a screenshot of an automated message she received after Twitter suspended her account — citing violation of its terms of service and a lockout period of 12 hours — on Wednesday night. 
“Twitter has suspended me. This is the sad reality.—

The rep also noted: “Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power. “We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan’s team,” Twitter said in a series of posts. Harvey Weinstein scandal: Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow allege harassment

McGowan, who was included in the initial New York Times exposé about Weinstein, has been vocal about the controversy on social media in the past week. The suspension sparked widespread outrage from her Twitter followers and from fellow entertainment industry peers. Asking for multiple victims of sexual violence. Fix that quick. board and disputed the statements of certain figures, including actor Ben Affleck, who claimed to have had no knowledge of Weinstein’s behaviour. She wrote in support of those who have come forward about harrassment, called for the dissolution of The Weinstein Co. Yeah. There are powerful forces at work.

Suspension sparks outrage
The action came after the past week’s explosive allegations of sexual harassment and sexual assault against powerful Hollywood producer Weinstein. Rose McGowan, who emerged as a galvanizing Hollywood voice during the explosive Harvey Weinstein scandal, had her Twitter account temporarily suspended, the actress revealed via other social media accounts. I expect to start seeing smear stories on her anytime now. “The tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked. https://t.co/Xznc9OgDvR—

Oh hey women, if you don’t speak up about abuse by someone powerful you’re complicit, but when you do your twitter account gets locked. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future.”

We have been in touch with Ms. We stand with the brave women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices. So.—
