Twitter fixes 'follower' bug
No, it wasn't something you said.
Apparently, an effort to fix a bug that can be used to force people to follow a Twitter user has temporarily zeroed out all users' follower lists, Schonfeld writes.
"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," the company said.
From what we're hearing, the follower bug has been fixed -- so feel free to tweet your heart out.
