Amanda Bynes made her Twitter return on March 1, sending love to her 3 million followers and giving them an update on her life as a student at California's Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Nine days later, she used the social networking site to both post a self-portrait and to debunk a rumor.
"New sketch," Bynes said of the pencil drawing she shared with fans. Referencing an article that appeared in the March 17 issue of In Touch, the 27-year-old Hairspray star informed Twitter users, "FYI This is my only twitter account, I have no secret twitter accounts. Xoxo Amanda."
The tabloid accused Bynes of tweeting under the handle @PersianLA27 and using the pseudonym "Ashley Barks." Noting the accounts' similarities, social media expert Susan Jack-Wharton argued, "If this isn't Amanda Bynes' private Twitter account, then someone is doing a very good job of impersonating her."
