As the wave of sexual harassment and assault allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein have surged, actress Rose McGowan has emerged as one of the most outspoken critics.

In the New York Times story that detailed how Weinstein had paid off accusers for decades, McGowan was reported to be one of his victims who was paid $100,000 settlement in 1997. As big Hollywood names have expressed shock, McGowan has been calling out the industry on Twitter for being hypocritical, claiming that many knew about Weinstein, including actor Ben Affleck.

But now it appears those tweets have run afoul of Twitter’s terms of service. Posting on Instagram, McGowan said he had received a notice that her Twitter account had been suspended for 12 hours:

It’s not clear which tweets specifically caused the issues. But it’s the latest sign of the challenges facing Twitter in terms of monitoring its content.

McGowan’s tweets were clearly angry, and for good reason. But she doesn’t appear to have directly threatened violence against anyone. And certainly they could be deemed newsworthy, an exception the company applies to people like President Trump even when he posts insulting, angry messages of his own.

The company has promised more transparency around these decisions. This might be a good time to start.
