    Late on May 8, i had about 10 of my ~50 twitter accounts suspended without warning. I went through the steps for unsuspension on Sunday night May 12, and they were restored without explanation within about 24 hours. When I logged in, all followers and followings appeared to be stripped, again without explanation.

    Now, Tuesday morning May 14, the followers and followings have been restored.

    I can't figure out what happened. Was I penalized temporarily? Just a Twitter bug? Did I do anything wrong?

    Twitter somehow caught on to something you are doing. Same proxies for too many accts, same tweets for too many accts, etc, etc. When an acct gets suspended and you get it back, it often times will appear to be "stripped" of its followers and following, but in reality it just takes Twitter a few hours to get everything sorted and back to the way it was. OP be extra careful with those accts now as they will be much harder to get back again in the future if suspended again.

    Regarding the loss and regain of followers - When you get suspended they tell you it may take a while for your followers to reappear. Just try using less accounts per proxies. It's a dangerous game either way.

    I did use Manageflitter to do some bulk unfollows - is that a trigger?

    How many people did you follow/unfollow a day?

    I never follow more than 90 a day, but I have unfollowed 300 or more with Manageflitter.

    Those are the rules. Twitter should have given you a message after you typed in the captcha. It should have told you that the numbers will return back to normal shortly.
