Twitter steps in it … again

Written by  Becket Adams

Aside from maybe Dove, is there a company with more own-goals than Twitter?

She has been on a tear these last few days following widespread allegations that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is a major league sexual predator.

McGowan has been shouting for years about the industry's sex abuse problem, and the latest reports on Weinstein have served as a sort of vindication for her. Along with tweeting notes that amount to "I told you so!" she has also taken other high-profile celebrities, including Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, to task for either shielding sexual harassers or participating in harassment themselves.

Her Twitter posts were apparently too much for the powers that be at the social media company, and her account was paused temporarily. McGowan revealed early Thursday morning: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE," she wrote on her Instagram page.
