#WomenBoycottTwitter: There's Now A Big Protest To Rose McGowan's Suspension

While Twitter has not revealed exactly why McGowan's account was suspended, it followed her speaking out about sexual abuse, and telling Ben Affleck to "fuck off" after he said he knew nothing of Weinstein's reputation for sexual harassment.

The idea is the brainchild of software engineer Kelly Ellis in defense of actress Rose McGowan and "all the victims of hate and harassment Twitter fails to support".

Actors Anna Paquin, Alyssa Milano, and John Cusack are among those who've thrown their support behind the boycott, which is meant to show solidarity with survivors of abuse and protest Twitter's silencing of McGowan and other survivors who speak out.

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

To this, Rose had tweeted, "GODDAMNIT!" The notice said that Twitter determined McGowan's account had violated the Twitter Rules, she said. The tweet in question was deleted and her account was unblocked.

Uploading a screenshot with a message from Twitter stating she can not send tweets or retweets from her account, unless she deletes "tweets that violate our rules", McGowan captioned the image: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

McGowan tweeted the call for #WomenBoycottTwitter on Thursday night, saying, "At midnight we RISE".

McGowan concluded her tweets by calling on Bezos, 53, to "stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers". We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future.

McGowan didn't just unleash her thoughts on Weinstein, but also on several Hollywood figures who have since come out to denounce the former movie producer.

At the time the truncated social platform insisted that "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power".
