    I have an account with 10k followers and it says I am following 218 people but only 1 person shows up on the list. I cannot access who I am following or unfollow the 218.

    Is there anyway to get rid of this and does anyone have experience with this ghost following?

    This is not new. It's been this way for over a year now. There is nothing you can do about it.

    Well once you followed ordinary accounts, and then they were banned ..
    And you can't do anything with it :(
    I have 164,000 followers on my account and I follow about 2000 banned accs..
    And can't unfollow them
    It's not cool

    Trust me, no one cares about who your followers are and they wont even clue in that its a "Ghost" account. People dont even know you can buy followers and likes.

    ahh that sucks, great job with the 164k though!

    If so many people have had this problem then maybe we should find a solution. We have lots of talent and bright minds here im sure we can develop a bot or service to fix it.

    I am an entertainer/personality so people actually like to see who I follow. My profiles undergo lots of scrutiny so it would be wise to try to find a solution. If not ill probably wind up following 500 extra so the 200 ghosts don't show up
