Amanda Bynes deletes Twitter account?

First she took a break from acting, and now it seems Amanda Bynes has retired from Twitter. The "Hairspray" star appears to have deleted her account over the past few days.

Bynes, who goes by the handle "chicky" on the social network, had been using the account to share childhood photos, YouTube clips of her old TV commercials and her deep – and occasionally confusing – thoughts on everything from family to heartbreak to men.

In June, however, the 24-year-old actress left no doubt that she was ending her 14-year run in show business. "If I don't love something anymore, I stop doing it. I don't love acting anymore, so I've stopped doing it," she tweeted.

One month later, she changed her mind, informing her followers with a simple, "I've unretired."

Perhaps Bynes, who plays a super-religious high school student in the new comedy "Easy A," due in theaters Friday, will have a change of heart and bring chicky out retirement too.

    Who cares? Twitter is stupid, anyway. Same with all of the social networking sites. Just a waste of time that lowers your attention span.

    But what the hell happened to Amanda's face?! That's scary! She looks like a blow up doll! =/

    I think Sky is right: it was just a front to get work done.

    I admire Amanda's conviction of retiring from Show business and closing her Twitter Account.

    Best of Luck with your future, Amanda.

  9. Who cares

    What.... Who cares if someone deletes their twitter account. One less person posting useless information on there.

      I think its funny that she conveniently deleted her twitter account right before Easy A was released. She also didn't attend the premiere, probably to evade questions about her future in show biz. She was always in semi-retirement. Bynes hasn't appeared in a film or tv show since 2007's Sydney White. After that she went M.I.A. only to return three years later, but it seems to be short lived as bynes doesn't have anything else planned so this is the last time that we will see her on the big screen.

      she was funny on twitter and i think people really got to know her as a person. most celebs just post silly links and quotes, they also converse with people we don't know, but they keep it proffessional. bynes acted like a normal adult on twitter, she shared everything. My favorite was when she went on a twitter rampage posting random words like Film = Movie and Book=Something You Read. It was shocking to see her retirement post as everyone thought she was joking but a relief when she abruptly said I've unretired. Her silly quotes were also entertaining. She will be missed on the twitter universe. Hopefully, she comes back.
