Rose McGowan blocked on Twitter

Rose McGowan'south Twitter account was temporarily blocked for violating some of the social network's rules.

The actress, who was recently named in a NY Times expose alleging sexual misconduct by Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, has been tweeting about the scandal since it broke.

Weinstein was forced out of his company after several woman came forward alleging he'd harassed them and acted inappropriately. More accusations, including alleged rape, have since surfaced.

McGowan Instagrammed a photo of a notification from Twitter late Wednesday saying the site had "determined that this account had violated the Twitter Rules, so we temporarily Ltd some of your account features."

This left McGowan unable to tweet for twelve hours, according to the notification. The caption on her official Instagram account said: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE."

Twitter can temporarily obstruct a user for a variety of reasons, including abusive content and threats. It'south unclear which of McGowan'south tweets triggered the block.

A spokesman for Twitter told CNNMoney the company doesn't comment on individual accounts for privacy and security reasons.

The "Charmed" star wasn't quoted in the Times story. CNN hasn't spoken with McGowan about the alleged sexual misconduct.

McGowan has led the charge for the board of Weinstein'south company to be dissolved. She believes it was complicit in Weinstein'south alleged behavior.

The actress urged people maintain a petition started by an anonymous person on the website iPetitions.

"If you believe The Weinstein Company should totally dissolve after thirty years of sexual abuse against innocent women please connect me in signing this petition to honor the victims and their bravery," the petition reads.

As of Thursday morning, it'd more than 11.000 signatures, exceeding its goal of 10.000.

Film director Paul Feig, who's condemned Weinstein, tweeted about the move to obstruct McGowan'south Twitter account.

"Wow, @Twitter, seriously," Feig wrote. "THIS is the account you suspend but not Trump who threatened to wipe out another country? Suspend me too, please."
