Amanda Bynes is back on Twitter



After a six-month stint in rehab last year, troubled Twitter superstar Amanda Bynes returned to the social networking site March 1, giving her 3 million followers an update on her life as a Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising student in California.

Nine days later, she tweeted out a self-portrait sketch and a message: “New sketch. FYI This is my only twitter account, I have no secret twitter accounts. Xoxo Amanda.”

An issue of In Touch magazine this month accused Bynes of tweeting under the pseudonym “Ashley Barks.” Social media expert Susan Jack-Wharton, noting the two accounts’ similarities, said “If this isn’t Amanda Bynes’ private Twitter account, then someone is doing a very good job of impersonating her.”


Bynes has deleted many of her joke-inspiring, often strange previous tweets. The Easy A actress and former Nickelodeon star recently struck a plea deal stemming from her DUI arrest in 2012, serving a sentence of three years’ probation. She also will attend a three-month alcohol education program.
