Suggestion: Hiding followers and following number!


#1

Hello developers,

I would like to suggest having an option in settings that allows to hide the number of followers and following in a profile. Though, one could check the following and followers list without showing a number.

I think it will be a good option since a fine percentage of people now decide to follow based on the number of followers someone has -popularity- instead of checking one’s tweets at times (To seek RTs and therefore gaining followers).
Also for others there is a “I want more followers” crisis and by applying this option the number of followers won’t matter as much.

Hope this suggestion at least looked at.
Thank you.
