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

Rose is one of a host of stars who allege the disgraced movie mogul sexually harassed or assaulted them, and had been using Twitter to denounce those she viewed as complicit in protecting him.

The hashtag #WomenBoycottTwitter has been shared more than 190,000 times in a matter of hours.

Other Twitter users are abstaining from the boycott for a variety of reasons.

Twitter said Ms McGowan's account had been temporarily locked because one of her tweets violated its terms of service. Silence is what got us here.

Twitter's response, in light of its decision to allow President Donald Trump to effectively tweet anything due to "newsworthiness", had the Left seething and demanding more social media censorship-just not for liberals.

"But along with support came some backlash from women who disagreed with the boycott tactic and encouraged Twitter users to "#AmplifyWomen" instead. This happened after Rose had tweeted several times this week about Weinstein and about Ben Affleck. "I said I was the proof", she claimed, later confirming to The Hollywood Reporter that the initials in her tweet belonged to Weinstein. "Not even joking, his account lives".

It's unclear which of McGowan's tweets that Twitter identified as violating its rules. Crews, a former National Football League player who stars in US TV show Brooklyn Nine-Nine, earlier said he had also been the victim of sexual molestation by a Hollywood executive.

Silence will speak volumes on Friday as a day long Twitter boycott has been organized to protest harassment and abuse against women on the social media platform.

Others, including director Ava DuVernay, suggested non-white women in similar positions had frequently not received the same level of support.

Filmmaker Ava added her voice to the campaign, and highlighted the abuse women of color have reported to Twitter staff.
