    I have a twitter account and am only following 2 ppl (after mass unfollowing about 30k :)).
    but the following count won't go below 100.

    anyone had this problem?

    You can't mass unfollow that much without a suspension. That could be your issue.

    Try to check your followings on a mobile app. Use your timeline and profile´s following ones. Good luck :)

    If you mass unfollow with certain apps yes it can cause a problem.

    Just give it a bit of time to refresh.

    Realistically, if you were following 30k people previously, then having a following count of only 100 still isn't that bad.

    Happens to me, I unfollowed everyone and there's a certain number of people i'm following. But oh well it doesn't bother me. I'm sure it'll go away soon

    Well, I didnt get suspended. I unfollowed all of them over 48 hours - I used manageflitter.com and zennoposter for a bit of extra automation:)
    I had 17k followers as well and its an aged account so I guess it didnt look too suspicious.

    could be I guess.

    checked on several different devices and apps.

    true.

    Yea, it just annoys me:)

    It's a glitch, there's no way to fix this I'm afraid.

    Wow i guess i was wrong, using manageflitter i have been suspended before but i guess your right with it needing to be an older account.

    I feel that is more of a server bug and it will update in a couple of days. But really why would you bother so much with it.

    I've just realised - if I look on my timeline I can see be unfollow people that aren't listed in "following".
    so it's not twitter mistaking how many people I'm following, it's just they are not showing them in my list of followers.
