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.

Advertising consultant Cindy Gallop, founder of the U.S. division of advertising firm Bartie Bogle Hegarty, is leading calls for a day long Twitter boycott led by women until midnight tonight in a show of solidarity with actress Rose McGowan - who was handed a 12-hour suspension for tweeting a private phone number.

In addition to criticizing Weinstein, McGowan has used Twitter to slam individuals, including actor Ben Affleck, who she said knew of Weinstein's behavior but failed to act and protect victims. "Be my voice." She then included the hashtags #RoseArmy and #WhyWomenDon'tReport. In order to begin the 12-hour suspension, the message told her to delete tweets that violated the company's rules.
