A handle that I wasn’t familiar with retweeted a tweet of mine a few minutes ago, and I checked it up out of habit. Here is what I saw:
My first reaction was, How is this even possible? Zero followers; zero following; but over 65,000 tweets!! How is it possible to have posted 65,000 tweets while following no-one and being followed by no-one? Then it got worse. The section below the profile stated:
“Followed by Tunde, GEMINI THOMAS, Akin Akintayo and 11 others.”
Err. Surely, that is at least 14 followers, though the statistics summary says zero followers.
Just to be sure, I checked the same profile on mobile, and got the same statistics. Zero followers and zero following. Another Twitter bug?
