Former What I Like About You actress Amanda Bynes returned to Twitter after a 26 day hiatus, and posted a rare picture of herself.

Bynes has been infamously going through a rough patch for the last long while, and Twitter has been her choice platform to vent her frustrations and sensibilities.

In April, 2012 Bynes was arrested after hitting a police car, and charged with a DUI. The actress was then involved in two hit and run incidents occurring later in April and in August. Her downward spiral deepened after she was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, attempted tampering with evidence and reckless endangerment. Police had witnessed Bynes toss a bong out of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment. She claimed it was a vase, insisted that an arresting officer slapped her vagina, and was taken for a psychiatric evaluation before being booked at a police station.

In July, 2013, Bynes was arrested after setting a small fire in front of a random house in Thousand Oaks, California. The former All That star was then hospitalized under a 72-hour 5150 mental health evaluation hold, and a judge granted her mother conservatorship over her finances and medical care. The conservatorship ended in December, 2013, and Bynes was arrested for another DUI in September.

In October, Bynes was placed on another psychiatric hold for 30 days, after accusing her father of repeatedly molesting her when she was a child, on Twitter. She tweeted, "He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respond and I said no and then." The actress later recanted, tweeting, "My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."

Bynes is presently loose, and had this to say about her present conservatorship situation, peppered with more random tweets (She recently threatened to kill her parents, but later apologized):

Bynes' latest tweet:

An employee at the Valley Village, California Boutique Jules location called Bynes "a lovely girl," and added that "She is the best customer we have had so far."
