    Pretty sure I've read a lot worse than "**** off" on twitter. Pretty sure the authors didn't get banned.

    For once the SJW outrage might actually prove constructive.

    From what I can tell Weinstein is being portrayed as another example of The Patriarchy, so by silencing Rose in response to attacking Affleck for covering for Harvey, Twitter is playing gatekeeper for The Patriarchy, yada yada yada, cue the outrage and waterworks.

    Yeah, but outrage only really exists if the media covers it. At this point the guardian article should have mentioned the outrage.

    I think it takes a few hours for a good mob to get going and most of the SJWs are probably faaaast asleep still.

    Twitter told the Guardian that McGowan’s account was temporarily locked because one of her tweets included a private phone number, which violates the company’s terms of service.

    So the one time I think that the outrage machine might actually do something useful, they all decide to pointedly shut up instead.

    Just heard that the number posted by Rose was that of an abuse hotline, not a private number.
