Twitter suspends Rose McGowan's account after Ben Affleck tweets

But, after McGowan gave the interview "her lawyer contacted Farrow and NBC to revoke consent because it could put her in legal jeopardy given the terms of her settlement agreement", said "sources with knowledge of the situation". The actress' account was temporarily suspended after she posted several tweets speaking out against Harvey Weinstein and those complicit in the film producer's sexual predations. Costolo scrambled, ordering teams to delete offending accounts and tweets. "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", the company added.

The Weinstein Company, which fired Harvey Weinstein over the weekend, is working with Amazon on two upcoming series. The social media platform didn't specify, but before her suspension she did give Ben Affleck a "F**k you" after he issued an apology to Hilarie Burton for groping her on TRL in 2003. On her Instagram account, McGowan said "there are powerful forces at work". "BE MY VOICE", McGowan wrote.

Many have called Twitter's harassment rules and enforcement arbitrary because they allow President Trump to blast senators with taunts like "Liddle Corker" or call Mika Brzezinski "Low I.Q. Crazy Mika". What's more, she blasted Affleck after the actor condemned Weinstein's alleged acts of sexual harassment, insisting he has been aware of the accusations for years.

In a statement last week, Weinstein, who is now facing police probes, said: "I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed".

However, police will not re-open the 2015 investigation into claims made by model Ambra Gutierrez that Weinstein groped her. Representatives for Affleck haven't responded to messages regarding that allegation. She also started a petition calling for the entire board of Weinstein's production company to resign.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women, including Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne, and more.

This is another case that highlight a problem with Twitter's policies - it can often be very hard to determine exactly what has been done to violate them. "You lie", she posted.
