Actress Rose McGowan's Twitter account has been suspended for violating Twitter's rules.

Rose McGowan's Twitter account has been suspended for violating Twitter's rules, McGowan says in an Instagram post.

"TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME," she wrote. "THERE ARE POWERFUL VOICES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY."

The actress has been vocal on the platform in recent days regarding the recent sexual harassment allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein. She settled with Weinstein in 1997.

She called Ben Affleck a liar on Tuesday, as well as telling him to "f*** off," after he stated that he had no knowledge of Weinstein's activities, and posted several tweets encouraging her followers to sign a petition to dissolve the board of The Weinstein Company, which she alleges had knowledge of Weinstein's behavior.

The actress also tweeted support of Weinstein's fellow accusers, including Asia Argento, and of Ronan Farrow, who authored the explosive New Yorker article, which revealed further alleged assaults committed by Weinstein.

McGowan will not have access to her account for 12 hours.

Twitter provided no specific instances of her rule violation, but stated that she can delete the tweets that violate its rules to gain access to her account more quickly.

According to Twitter's website, common reasons for account suspension include spam, an account's security being at risk, and if the account is reported for abusive behaviour. The site reads, "We may suspend an account if it has been reported to us as violating our Rules surrounding abuse. When an account engages in abusive behaviour, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently."
