Tech 12-10-2017 Mashable 16

Twitter is finally breaking its silence on why Rose McGowan was temporarily suspended from its platform.

The actress — who has been vocal about Harvey Weinstein amid dozens of other women alleging he sexual harassed and assaulted them — announced on Instagram Wednesday night that Twitter suspended her account for 12 hours for violating the platform's rules.

Though it was unclear at the time which tweet violated Twitter's rules, the official Twitter Safety account clarified McGowan had included a private phone number in one of her tweets, which is prohibited in the site's Privacy Policy.
