#WomenBoycottTwitter is trending worldwide as Hollywood stars boycott Twitter

Major Hollywood movie stars have announced that they are boycotting Twitter after they suspended the account of Rose McGowan. Speculation was rife that Twitter had suspended her account after she accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. However, Twitter was quick to rebuff these claims. ‘We want to explain that her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates our Terms of Service.’

McGowan was less than pleased that her account has been locked by the social media giant and took to Instagram to share the shocking news. Since then, a number of Hollywood stars, both male and female, have boycotted the social account in protest at McGowan’s account being frozen. The hashtag #WomenBoycottTwitter was quickly trending worldwide on Twitter.

Elizabeth was one of the first women to announce that she was taking some time away. ‘Taking a mental health break from Twitter. #WomenBoycottTwitter.’ Celebrities such as Kathy Griffin and Sarah Paulson quickly followed suit. Kathy said ‘Ok ok Jesus, let me clear this up. #WomenBoycottTwitter will not silence us, but @Twitter will make much less $$ b/c of fewer clicks. I’m in.’ Sarah said she was also standing with Rose and shared the hashtag.
