Rose McGowan, one of Harvey Weinstein's accusers, has account limited by Twitter
From BBC - October 12, 2017

The actress Rose McGowan, who was one of the first to speak out about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assaults, has been temporarily limited from using some Twitter features.

McGowan was named in a New York Times article revealing decades of sexual harassment against young actresses.

Twitter has "limited" her account for 12 hours for "violating" its rules.

It means she and ca not tweet, retweet or like posts, and can only send direct messages, for 12 hours.

In their message to McGowan, Twitter says that it will reactivate her account if she deletes tweets which violate their rules.

It's not clear which rules she has violated, but they may be over ones she posted about actor Ben Affleck.

In a tweet which has since been deleted, she said that Affleck knew about Weinstein's behaviour.

Affleck posted a Facebook status saying that he was "saddened and angry" at Weinstein, who "used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades".
