    First it brought back the old list of people i was following
    I Was following only 17 people, twitter made it 252 on its own

    Then it deleted all the people following me from the list of followers. 2000+ followers disappeared just like that.

    Its still is allowing me to access my account and add tweets

    What does this exactly mean am i banned without getting my account deleted or is it some problem at their end ?

    I'm seeing the same thing on another account. I don't get it, I still get "so and so is following you on Twitter" email, but my follower count is still 0. I can also follow that account, then refresh the page, and 'Follow' is back. It's like it doesn't stick.

    I've never noticed anything like that, but I don't check the numbers that close

    Could it be an issue with their servers?

    That would be possible. I don't think they're compromised accounts though.

    Looks like they identified the problem:

    You can read the post here.

    In my case, the accounts with the issues are new.

    I would be surprised if twitter didnt know of this problem. Luckily it only affected the new accounts.

    Thanks for the informative links. You are quite right hanji, my account isnt a compromised account as i didnt allow access to any third party web app, but i used API to broadcast my feeds and it was done at my own site, nothing malicious in it.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Finally got my all followers back 2121 in total :) but the amount of people i was following has still remained unchenged. Prior I did a mistake by following really useless twitter accounts and it took a lot of clicks to reduce my following from 200+ to less than 20 , will now have to work on it !
