Excerpted from Huffpo: Have you ever tried to follow someone on Twitter and, moments later, realized that Twitter has rudely unfollowed them for you?
If this “Unfollow” button bug has been plaguing you for far too long, fear not: Twitter has finally directly acknowledged the issue and, in short, said it’s working on it.
Jeremiah Owyang, an industry analyst writing for TechCrunch, raised his unfollow woes with a Twitter rep, who responded, “This is a bug, and our team is working to fix it.”
In addition, Owyang’s contact directed him to the Twitter Help Center, which already has a “Bug Alert” note featured on the page of one of its “Top Issues” topics, “I’m Having Trouble with Following.”
The note states,
Bug alert: A person you’ve recently followed shows in your following tab, but appears with a follow icon so it looks like you’re not following them [...] Visit their profile if you’d like to confirm you’re following them. Engineers are working to resolve the issues listed above. Thanks for your patience!
