When I logged on to Twitter this morning, I got a fright. My follower and following counts had both disappeared and Twitter was suggesting that I follow some users.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
And it seems like I’m not the only one. Lots of Twitter users are reporting the same issue.
Hmm. Anyone else's follower/following count disappeared on desktop this morning? pic.twitter.com/H5C1H1swXC

It is more than likely a bug, similar to the one that recently told people their profiles didn’t exist when they logged in.
While there are still ongoing reports of people getting the error, some users are also reporting that it’s returned to normal.
Some Twitter users may be experiencing an issue with inaccurate follower counts. We are currently investigating this issue.
