Twitter declares war on Twitter

It looks like they want to die, over there at Twitter. They suspended Rose McGowan's account.

Rose McGowan had her Twitter account suspended on Wednesday night. 

The actress, who is at the center of the storm of sexual misconduct allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, took to her Instagram and Facebook accounts to relay the news of her suspension, writing cryptically that: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY."

She added a screenshot from a message from Twitter telling her that she had violated their terms of service and she would be locked out for 12 hours.

I would not be amazed to find out she was suspended by an automated system based on keywords, or a brain-dead drone employee somewhere in the guts of a Twitter cubicle farm..

But then again, I would not be amazed to find out Harvey Weinstein made a phone call.

Either way, its one thing to suspend "literally Hitler" Milo Yiannopoulos after Antifa nearly burns down a building trying to get him. Its another thing to suspend cutesie Rose McGowan in the middle of the Weinstein Incident.

Not a good PR look, Twitter.
