Amanda Bynes deletes Twitter?! Say it isn't so!

Amanda-BynesImage Credit: Valarie Jean/Getty ImagesThis sure has been an interesting summer to follow Amanda Bynes’ Twitter feed. In June, she announced her retirement from acting on her beloved Twitter account, and in July, she simply announced that she “unretired” from acting on her Twitter. In the few weeks in between, Amanda tweeted around the clock, making all her faithful followers believe that while she no longer loved acting enough to do it full-time, she certainly loved Twitter enough to pursue that full-time instead. It certainly was the summer of love for Amanda Bynes and her Twitter (cue Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson singing “Summer Lovin'” right about now).

So imagine my shock to see that Amanda deleted her @chicky Twitter account completely out of nowhere and without any fanfare. At least when Miley Cyrus retired from Twitter, she explained her reasoning to soften the blow a little. Where else will we learn the sordid details of her maybe-sorta relationship with Kid Cudi? Or follow the breaking news of her retirement-turned-unretirement-turned Easy A plug? Or read really awkward words of “wisdom”? I guess with tweeting out of her life, Amanda can focus all her energies on her acting, rather than finding the perfect emoticon to end all her tweets. I can only hope that this Twitter retirement provides ample time for her to film a sequel to Sydney White. And, much like her retirement from acting, I hope that this is similarly brief.

So while we can no longer mine Amanda’s Twitter archives for her pearls of wisdom and TMI overshares, we can still remember the good old days by watching this video of real New Yorkers reading some of her more head-scratching tweets.

How long do you think Amanda Bynes will remain retired from Twitter, PopWatchers?

    What!? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

    I care so deeply about this.

    • paula

      then why did you read it?

      • Will

        Paula can smell your sarcasm a mile off, and she disapproves.

      • Tom

        I am going to kick your boyfriend in the balls

      • Debra

        Thank you, Tom.

      • Em

        Assumptions, much? Geez, Paula. I actually do care. Amanda Bynes is like Audrey Hepburn to me.

  • missangeleen

    Because how can you know if you’ll care about something until after you know exactly what that something is?

  • kate

    Amanda Bynes retired from acting… and no one of importance noticed. Seriously, what has she done, 5 terrible movies? Yes, I’ve seen Sydney White AND She’s the man (I know, there’s no excuse) and they are TERRIBLE. I think the world will continue to turn.

    • jules

      She was actually ok in “Hairspray.” I was stunned.

      • TytianaCS

        That’s because she didn’t have much of a speaking role.

    • Sandrita

      Why does everyone hate “Sydney White” so much? It wasn’t an Oscar contender or anything like that, but it was cute!

      • Tamara

        I liked both and thought they were really cute movies!!

    • MichelleTraub

      I like ‘She’s the Man’…why yes, I am embarrassed to admit that.

      • Jason S.

        Because that movie was crap!

      • Ellie

        Not many actresses would attempt that role but she pulled it off pretty well. She seems goofy and fun, at least on film. The movie was better than average one for the teen market.

  • Fatima

    I know it’s not nice and I wouldn’t say this about most celebrities….But I just don’t like her face.

    • etm

      me either

    • fancypants

      i feel the same way about maggie gyllenhaal’s face.

  • Amber

    It’s not nice, but I forgive you. Because am I the only one who thinks this picture looks NOTHING like her?

    • brandinb

      I totally agree. It looks nothing like her. Did she have work done?

    • Sara

      At a glance, it kinda looks like Lauren Conrad.

    • etm

      I think it looks like her, but I think she wears way too much makeup (in every picture, not just this one). I am not sure I know what her natural face even looks like!

      • Ellie

        I like her as a actress but hate her look the past couple years. She used to be a fresh and pretty brunette. She clearly has issues with looks-obsessed Hollywood, but I hope she sticks with acting.

    Her Facebook had the goofiest posts. If you look at her posts beyond their literal meaning, there was a zen angle to enjoy her Tweets at. It was sort of like being a paper sales manager and laughing at Michael Scott; you start to realize, you’re laughing at yourself and the things that make you just like her. I said it before, I’ll say it again: she’s hilarious, she should act and perform for as long as it’s fun, but I hope she’ll retire from being a celebrity, because it hasn’t loved her back enough.

  • Katy

    Thank God that twitter was annoying I unfollowed her it was stupid.

  • Cris

    You can just feel the apathy…

  • Garry

    I’m a big Amanda fan, but I think she should stop this nonsense,get off her gorgeous butt, and get back to acting. She’s a very under-rated comic actress, but she needs better scripts to work with.

  • praptomowow

    i think she wants to become more popular than before…
    By the time You doin something shocking, people would’ve told about U..

  • Miko

    Ah, another young girl learns bad decisions can be made when you drink and tweet. I will miss her inanity, but it was probably a good move on her part.

  • donny wahls

    she loves cocaine and booze almost as much as i do. true story.

  • Taylor

    However will I get up in the morning?

  • The Jackal

    I saw the previews for Easy A and I didn’t even recognize her.
