Twitter responds to criticism over blocking Rose McGowan

Actress Rose McGowan has accused Ben Affleck of lying over his prior knowledge of producer Harvey Weinstein's predatory sexual behaviour - and had her Twitter account frozen as a result.

Although Twitter has previously said that it takes the "newsworthiness" and "public interest" of a tweet into account when deciding whether to take action against it or not, these considerations didn't seem to apply to McGowan - even though McGowan and her tweets have become an important part of the news about Weinstein, a story in which she is directly involved as a victim.

McGowan shared the news of her suspension on Instagram early Thursday morning, posting a screenshot of the message she had received from Twitter alerting her to the suspension and asking her to "delete Tweets that violate our rules".

She then posted a screengrab of the apparent message she was sent by Twitter, it read: 'We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules, so we've temporarily limited some of your account features.

It was a damning allegation from the actress, who has been one of the most vocal celebrities calling out those in Hollywood who stayed silent on the issue for decades.

"We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future", Twitter said in a tweet.

"Girls. I'm so impressed with you fearless ones", Burton, who is expecting her second child with The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, wrote in the tweet.

Twitter claims that it suspends user accounts for "abusive behavior".

While McGowan has avoided addressing her past with Weinstein directly, she has often seemingly referenced it. "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", Twitter tweeted. Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.

The flap over McGowan's suspension came days after Twitter blocked Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn) from promoting a campaign ad about her candidacy for Senate.

"The press conf (sic) I was made to go to after assault".
