McGowan Instagrammed a photo of a notification from Twitter late Wednesday saying the site had "determined that this account had violated the Twitter Rules, so we temporarily limited some of your account features".
The caption on her official Instagram account said: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME". She was suspended from sending tweets, retweets and liking messages, though her account remained visible to users. Teen Vogue has reached out to Twitter for further comment; this post will be updated with their response. The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked.
In a statement last week, Weinstein, who is now facing police probes, said: "I realized some time ago that I needed to be a better person and my interactions with the people I work with have changed". What's more, she blasted Affleck after the actor condemned Weinstein's alleged acts of sexual harassment, insisting he has been aware of the accusations for years. "BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY", she wrote on Insta. While Twitter says that her tweets were in violation of its policies, the company failed to reveal which tweets and which policies.
It is claimed she signed a non-disclosure agreement after filing the lawsuit after allegedly being paid $100,000 by Weinstein. It's unclear which of McGowan's tweets triggered the block. She also alleges, in a series of tweets in which she tagged Amazon's founder Jeff Bezos, that she told the head of Amazon studios about the alleged rape and called on Amazon to stop funding the work of "rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers". The Times said the document included language that the settlement did not constitute an admission of guilt on Weinstein's part. In an on-the-record, on-camera interview, McGowan repeatedly said Weinstein raped her, the sources said. We have contacted the actress and will update this story if she or her team responds.
Uploading a screenshot with a message from Twitter stating she can not send tweets or retweets from her account, unless she deletes "tweets that violate our rules", McGowan captioned the image: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".
