Twitter, Inc. shares closed up 4.06% yesterday with nearly 31 million shares traded. It’s been an interesting week for Twitter in regards to the Harvey Weinstein story that has surfaced about him sexually harassing women in Hollywood. According to CNBC’s Julia Boorstin, there has been call for a boycott of Twitter after actress Rose McGowan was temporarily suspended from the site. She had recently been tweeting about the shocking allegations about Weinstein and had called out Ben Affleck as well for knowing all about it. McGowan was able to tweet again on Thursday and wrote a simple tweet that read, "HW raped me." It was last year that McGowan had said a studio head had raped her. A representative for Weinstein said that "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein."
