This time, the account is legit, unlike the fake accounts created in Bynes's name on both Twitter and Instagram, in which imposters attempted to beg her fans for money. The scam accounts were what prompted the She's the Man star to return to Twitter in 2018.
Fans were thrilled about her first Instagram post.

Bynes, 33, has remained relatively mum on social media, with only three tweets on her Twitter page: one promoting her Paper Magazine profile, another celebrating her graduation from California's Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in June and now her Instagram announcement.
After being placed on a psychiatric hold in 2014, Bynes posted a series of tweets which claimed her father abused her and then later retracted her statements, adding that she wrote them because of a microchip in her brain.
In her Paper Magazine profile, Bynes opened up about her struggle regarding substance abuse, adding that while under the influence, she would make shocking statements on Twitter.
"My advice to anyone who is struggling with substance abuse would be to be really careful because drugs can really take a hold of your life," she said. "It makes me feel so horrible and sick to my stomach and sad. Everything I worked my whole life to achieve, I kind of ruined it all through Twitter."
