McGowan, who has been one of Weinstein's fiercest critics, implied the ban was part of a conspiracy in announcing it, saying "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

It emerged last week that McGowan reportedly sued the disgraced movie producer for allegedly abusing her in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.

It wasn't entirely clear which tweets had caused the suspension.

Many saw an immediate double-standard in her account being suspended, with McGowan's profile locked while many others - including those of white supremacists and even that of the US President - being allowed to stay open despite posting highly objectionable content.

Other Twitter users have since devised a plan to boycott Twitter on Friday, October 13, in support of women like McGowan who have been silenced for sharing their experiences. The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked. She was suspended from sending tweets, retweets and liking messages, though her account remained visible to users.

According to an expose last week in the New York Times, McGowan was one of several actors to receive a financial settlement from Weinstein in exchange for signing a nondisclosure agreement and agreeing not to press charges. She also alleges, in a series of tweets in which she tagged Amazon's founder Jeff Bezos, that she told the head of Amazon studios about the alleged rape and called on Amazon to stop funding the work of "rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers".

We have been unable to determine whether McGowan did tweet a phone number.

On Thursday, British actress Kate Beckinsale became the latest star to speak out against the Hollywood mogul, who she described as an emblem of a system that is sick. She said that during a cab ride with Price and former Amazon executive Michael Paull, Price repeatedly propositioned her and made inappropriate sexual comments.

Meanwhile, fellow actresses Jessica Chastain and Academy Award victor Patricia Arquette snapped back at Twitter. Representatives for Affleck haven't responded to messages regarding that allegation. "We stand with the courageous women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices".
