Twitter Problem – Suddenly 0 Followers/Following Bug
When I logged in to Twitter today, I was surprised to see that I was following nobody and nobody was following me.
I found a post on facebook regarding the updates from twitter that they recently fixed some bugs and are doing some kind of a rollback so I hope this will be remedied soon.
We identified and resolved a bug that permitted a user to “force” other users to follow them. We’re now working to rollback all abuse of the bug that took place. Follower/following numbers are currently at 0; we’re aware and this too should shortly be resolved.
Update (10:18 AM PST): Of note: protected updates did not become public as a result of this bug.
