    wtf with twitter?!

    i can tweet but i cannot follow, remove anybody, i mean i can remove any of my friends but the number of my friends is just the same (it's seems to be removed, but if i check it once more - refresh the page - my friend is not removed)...so what's that...another twitter bug...or i fucked up? maybe my ip banned for some reason? but it's very weird whenever i check my profiles, the number of my followers and friends are just the same, don't changing at all....

    anybody with same problem?

    Probably a bug, maybe you reached your API limit, how long has it been happening for you? My suggestion to you is don't touch the account for 24 hours, and than try again.

    By the looks of it, it's just a bug. You'll be fine. I've went through over 500 Twitter accounts now with no IP ban, you'll be fine.

    Yeah I spoke to soon, earlier it was not showing your are following in the list after you follow but this is working now. It is just the following counts that are still not changing.

    I think this must be a twitter side bug but I better stop now before i get banned for adding to many while testing this out!

    Nobody reads the status don't they lol..
    Whenever something is wrong with twitter i go to their status right away

    Upgrades planned to address follower/following problems
    We're planning a series of important upgrades tomorrow to address the issues we posted about previously today. We are making these changes as quickly as we can, however, inconsistencies with followers and following actions will persist until later in the day tomorrow.


    Follower/Following delays 1 day ago

    We're working to reduce the amount of time it takes for new follower/followings to take effect. Right now, after you follow or unfollow someone it may take some time for that action to be properly recorded and propagated throughout the system. As a result, you may run into discrepancies such as:

    * follower and following counts are off
    * new followings not showing up in your timeline
    * seeing that you can follow someone you've already followed

    We're planning several upgrades to address these issues and will post more as we make progress.

    Update (3:03p): Other inconsistencies in addition to the above also exist:

    * device notification changes for followers (choosing whose updates you get on your phone)
    * favoriting and unfavoriting of individual tweets
