Rose McGowan suspended from Twitter after Ben Affleck tweet

However, a short time later the star took to Instagram and Facebook to share that her Twitter feed had been suspended for 12 hours, for violating the social media sites' rules.

She has continued to use Twitter to comment on developments in the controversy and attack those in Hollywood who have remained silent about the Weinstein fall out.

McGowan has been a vocal critic of film producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women, including McGowan. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances".

'While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you're limited to only sending Direct Messages to your followers - no Tweets, Retweets, or likes.

McGowan has called out the likes of Bob Weinstein, Harvey's brother and co-founder, Ben Affleck, and the rest of the board, whom she says all knew of the accusations levelled against Weinstein.

Rose McGowan got back on Twitter this afternoon with a fury in her fingers.

"The tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked", a Twitter spokesperson for Twitter said.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey then linked to the official statement from his personal Twitter account, noting: "We need to be a lot more transparent in our actions in order to build trust". "We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future", the tweeted statement read. It's safe to say that pressure will mount for Twitter to figure out guidelines that make sense, enforce them uniformly and communicate more transparently about them. She believes it was complicit in Weinstein's alleged behavior. Many users were quick to point out that white supremacists and even Donald Trump could consistently provoke outrage and not have their accounts suspended. CNN has not spoken with McGowan about the alleged sexual misconduct. If you try to view a suspended profile, you'll see a notice explaining that the account has been suspended. "Suspend me too, please".

Twitter has given actor Rose McGowan a timeout amid an uproar over sexual harassment in Hollywood.
