Twitter Explains the Reason Rose McGowan's Account Was Suspended

Celebrities and fans have been furious that Rose McGowan‘s Twitter account was suspended this week after she’s been speaking in support of victims of sexual violence.

Now, Twitter is offering an explanation why after the backlash.

“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 of our Terms of Service. The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future,” Twitter said in a statement.

The rep continued, “Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power. We stand with the brave women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices.”

    Maybe they did, but she simply ignored it.
    She is pretty guns blazing and comes off as disturbed. Not that she is lying about Harvey – I believe everything she says about him and Ben etc. But she is relentless and will know no boundaries on SM.

  • Cool Boots

    You have a point that could have happened.

    Twitter is not the US Government. It’s a private business. People need to be careful to keep from treating it like it’s an arm of the Government, it’s not.

    You do realize this is just another form of social media here…no???
