    If anyone has any had any of the recent problems of your accounts showing ZERO following/followers I will tell you how I restored a couple of my accounts.

    I went to my account to the settings page ALL the way down at the bottom on the left side in red Delete My Account and actually deleted the account. Then waited 20-30 minutes to be sure and went back and logged into the account I deleted and it asked me if I want to restore it so I said yes. Then it sent me an email confirmation and the counts were back to normal or at least better than they were.

    My stats with these problems:
    2 accounts that had 0/0 counts were restored 100%. 2001/1385 and 1978/1456
    1 account that had lost around 1800 followers and gained around 1100 following was about 70% restored.
    1 account that had gained around 400 following was restored close to what it should have been.

    I had waited on twitter to fix them about 2-3 weeks and really didn't care at that point if I lost them or not as I saw it had worked for others so I tried it and it worked for me.

    If you decide to do it do NOT blame me if it doesn't work for you.

    Don't shoot the messenger!

    I'm just relaying what worked for me .....
