Twitter: Why we silenced Rose McGowan after she slammed alleged sex pest Harvey Weinstein


Phone Number Violation?

Surely if the Twits have an algorithm to identify a private phone number in a post then surely they can code a mechanism to either suppress the post or blot out the number before publishing it. Even if the phone number is identified by a human complaint they could simply remove the post or number.

The cynical me thinks that Twitter have either received a legal threat, or decided that this was a way to get themselves in the news again.
