LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Fresh out of rehab and a 13-day stint in jail, Lindsay Lohan returned to Twitter on Thursday -- and blasted the paparazzi who have been following her every move.

"Clearly.. Paparazzi shouldn't be allowed to take pictures or video while someone's driving or at a stop light. 4every1's sake," Lohan said in her first Tweet since the eve of being locked up on July 20.

Lohan, who was released on Tuesday after just 23 days of a court-ordered 90-day rehabilitation program, has also got back behind the wheel, after the suspension of her driving license for a 2007 drunk driving and cocaine possession charge.

The 24-year-old actress got her license back on Wednesday and was soon seen driving a Maserati sports car and picking up friends after midnight in Los Angeles.

Lohan, whose promising acting career in movies like "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls" has been eclipsed since 2007 by headlines about hard partying, has been trailed by photographers since her release.

She is also reported to have been inundated with offers, including interviews and celebrity endorsements.

One New York-area radio station has offered Lohan and her mother $1 million to host a morning radio talk show together that would cover fashion tips and entertainment news.

However, Lohan was ordered by a judge on Wednesday to remain in Los Angeles until November 1 to undergo twice weekly drug and alcohol testing, and continue drug and behavioral therapy.

Lohan's legal troubles have delayed shooting on her next movie in which she will play 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace. She was last in movie theaters with the 2007 flop "I Know Who Killed Me."

It must be nice to be rich, young, & beautiful. I mean how else can someone sentenced to a 90 day stint in both Jail & Rehab; manage to get out in just 5 weeks and with special treatment to boot? Some how I doubt that other 20 something drunk drivers not so well endowed (ie money) get anything like thw “hard” treatment that our Lindsey got. Just what makes this tart so special anyway? Talk about a “justice system” with double or triple standards… Wow! Only in the land of nuts and fruits; not the edible kind mind you.

I mean, really, in terms of work being commensurate with pay, how hard do you think she worked to make the movies, Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, and that Love Bug re-make? Pretty easy, cushy work I’d say to be driving around in a Maserati and living high off the hog. She has no isea how good she’s got it, so I say REPLACE HER with somene who does!
