Her post included a screenshot of a message saying that her account had violated Twitter's rules, so the social network "limited some of [her] account features."

 

"While in this state, you can still browse Twitter, but you're limited to only sending Direct Messages to your followers – no Tweets, Retweets or likes," the note said

 

"Your account will be restored to full functionality in: 12 hours and 0 minutes," the note continued. "You can start your countdown and continue to Twitter once you: Delete Tweets that violate our rules."

 

The rule-violating tweets were not identified in the screenshot.
