The Zero-Followers Twitter Scare Is Over

You have zero followers on Twitter right now. And you are following zero people. Check if you don't believe me.

Just hours ago we learned how to make anyone in the Twitter world follow us. All we had to do was type "accept [name of Twitter account we wanted to have follow us]"

But within minutes, Twitter went and started fixing things, saying a bug had been identified and dropping every Twitter user's follow/followers numbers to zero.

Even if your follow count was zero, your followers could see your Tweets and you could see those of people who are following you. The zeroes were lies.

And, as of 11:13am Kotaku time, Twitter was working again. Welcome back, my faithful four-thousand.
