Women Will Boycott Twitter Tomorrow in Support of Rose McGowan

McGowan posted a screenshot of her suspension on Instagram

Twitter users lashed out in her defense, accusing the company of not equally enforcing the rules against those who use hate speech.

After hours of silence, Twitter has finally issued a response.

Advertising consultant Cindy Gallop, founder of the United States division of advertising firm Bartie Bogle Hegarty, is leading calls for a day long Twitter boycott led by women until midnight tonight in a show of solidarity with actress Rose McGowan - who was handed a 12-hour suspension for tweeting a private phone number.

Some, like Sherlock's Amanda Abbington and comic book artist Kate Leth, questioned if responding to silence with more silence was the right approach, and many women of color also pointed out how they rarely receive the same kind of solidarity like this when they face online harassment.

On Tuesday, Hollywood stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie also made accusations of sexual harassment against Weinstein, while Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette claimed in a piece for The New Yorker that after rejecting the movie mogul's unwanted advances, they were kept from being hired for projects.

Rose McGowan said late Wednesday that Twitter had suspended her from tweeting. "When an account engages in abusive behaviour, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently".

McGowan tweeted the call for #WomenBoycottTwitter on Thursday night, saying, "At midnight we RISE".

"The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked".

At the time the truncated social platform insisted that "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power".
