To the relief of many who will later be crushed to discover that unfollowed them on purpose, Twitter finally admitted that a bug exists that unfollows other tweeters without any action or warning:

The bug is causing Twitter users to randomly unfollow people without account holders’ prior consent or knowledge. Twitter has advised affected people to visit its support page and go to fellow tweeters’ profile pages to check whether they are still following them or not.

And here you thought I unfollowed you because all you did was complain about minor glitches in service at restaurants most people can’t afford or post links to “special deals” or ask people “what should I blog about today?” or were just generally uninteresting or obnoxious and I don’t know you well enough to feel obligated to be your friend on a social networking site. Nope! It’s a bug. Honest.
Wait…would it be a Twug? Ah, who gives a twit.

    Astonishingly, I was totally indifferent to this.  People follow, unfollow.  Whatever.
