    LoL.. they are updating it :)
    There was a prob with it earlier.


    Improving following and follower infrastructure 4 days ago

    Over the next 24 hours we will be rolling out a major performance enhancement to our system that maintains following and follower relationships.

    In recent weeks, following and unfollowing actions did not always take effect. As we roll out this change, these past actions will be honored, so you may see small adjustments to your followings and followers.

    If you are not following people back, there are tools that people use to unfollow users who are not following you back. Some just follow you, wait for you to follow them then they unfollow you to keep their following ratio close to their followers.

    Hope that makes sense lol.

    I have been unable to un-follow people for several days now. Contacted support and said it is due to updates. Sooo annoying though.
