Chrissy Teigen and Anna Paquin are encouraging Twitter users to boycott the social network in protest against the suspension of Rose McGowan’s account.
Actress Rose McGowan’s Twitter account was suspended for 12 hours on Thursday for violating the social network’s rules. She had been vocal on Twitter over the past week regarding the sexual assault allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein.
The suspension of McGowan’s account was met with incredulity and outrage on social media, with many accusing the platform of silencing a woman who had been trying to speak up about sexual harassment.
Twitter has since reactivated McGowan’s account, and claims that it was suspended due to the actress tweeting a private phone number.
We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team. We want to explain that her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates our Terms of Service. 1/3
