Rose McGowan Returns To Twitter After Suspension

Twitter said her account was blocked because she'd posted someone's phone number.

Rose McGowan is back on Twitter after she posted a message to Instagram late Wednesday saying that the company had suspended her account. 

“TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME,” the actress had written. “THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE.”

In a statement on Thursday, Twitter said that McGowan had been temporarily blocked from tweeting after she posted someone’s phone number. Once the offending tweet was removed, the company said, the ban was lifted. 

After Twitter lifted the suspension of her account, McGowan sent a new tweet questioning Twitter’s priorities, while also seeming to reference President Donald Trump’s tweets about North Korea.

McGowan has been a vocal critic of film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women, including McGowan. She settled a lawsuit against Weinstein in 1997 after an incident in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival, The New York Times reported last week. 

In the days following the Times’ report, McGowan has addressed Weinstein’s behavior on Twitter.

In addition to criticizing Weinstein, McGowan has used Twitter to slam individuals, including actor Ben Affleck, who she said knew of Weinstein’s behavior but failed to act. She also started a petition calling for the entire board of Weinstein’s production company to resign.

Before Twitter clarified its reasoning for the suspension, users were quick to slam the social media network, with some calling for a boycott. It’s unclear whether that is still happening.

This story has been updated with Twitter’s statement explaining why McGowan’s account was locked and to note that she is tweeting again.
