Last night I had 19,297 followers and 16,622 friends (following)
This morning, I saw my account was locked. That confused me, but I unlocked it.
Then I see that I am down to 18,148 followers and ZERO friends???
My personal app is not write restricted so it didn’t come from me. If I accidently tried to unfriend 16000+ people I’d be write restricted before I got anywhere near the end.
If I go directly to a known friend’s profile I see I the mutual follow.
My profile shows 18.2K followers with no mention of friends
users/show returns [followers_count] => 18150 [friends_count] => 0
The account locked between 02:47 and 03:06 this morning (EST)
UPDATE 13:30 EST: Friends on profile at 2296, users/show no change
UPDATE 14:55 EST: Seems everything is back to normal, except for some 750 - 900 or so people who apparently unfollowed me after I “Unfollowed” them. Nice. Remind me again why I promote Twitter so much?
