#WomenBoycottTwitter Trends in Solidarity of Rose McGowan and Other Victims of Sexual Harassment

Twitter reacted very strongly when actress and vocal Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan‘s account was temporarily suspended.

The social media giant claimed she violated their terms and conditions and initially blocked her from tweeting for 12 hours, but after immediate backlash, they backtracked.

Now many Twitter users are calling not to use the site all day Friday, October 13, to show solidarity for McGowan and others who are silenced using the #WomenBoycottTwitter.

Several men and organizations have also tweeted their supporter.
