Actors Anna Paquin, Alyssa Milano, and John Cusack are among those who've thrown their support behind the boycott, which is meant to show solidarity with survivors of abuse and protest Twitter's silencing of McGowan and other survivors who speak out.

Canadian-born actor Anna Paquin welcomed any men who wish to show their support under the trending hash tag #WomenBoycottTwitter.

Uploading a screenshot with a message from Twitter stating she can not send tweets or retweets from her account, unless she deletes "tweets that violate our rules", McGowan captioned the image: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

Weinstein's spokesperson denied the latest accusation in a statement to CNN.

"But along with support came some backlash from women who disagreed with the boycott tactic and encouraged Twitter users to "#AmplifyWomen" instead.

"We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team", the company posted on the account it uses for safety announcements, according to The Independent. "This was a different idea for trying to get that message across", said Kelly Ellis, a software engineer from San Francisco, who created the hashtag.

Twitter said it suspended McGowan's account because one of her tweets contained a private phone number, which violated the company's terms of service. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future. "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", Twitter tweeted. I said I was the proof.

The first New York Times investigation into Weinstein reported that in 1997 McGowan, who was then 23, had reached a $100,000 settlement with the producer after "an episode in a hotel room". #WomenBoycottTwitter. Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better.
