Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, is trying to implement some changes on the social media giant after today's #womenboycotttwitter experience. The boycott was in response to the 12 hour ban of actress Rose McGowan after she violated the company's terms by posting private phone numbers.
The timing of McGowan's ban was extremely suspect, as it came hot on the heels of the public reports of Harvey Weinstein and his unconscionable alleged actions. The reinstatement of Rose's account came with her posting a confirmation that yes, she was talking about Weinstein in her posts about being raped.
The boycott was called for by Rose's fans and followers, calling themselves the #RoseArmy, and called for a 24 hour block of silence on twitter.
It seemed to work, though, as Dorsey has now posted this series of tweets in which he talks about a new "set of rules" the company hopes to put into effect:
Only time will tell if anything changes though. We're hopeful it'll get better before it gets worse.
