Hi all!

I noticed a wrong followers count, actually counting 2 "ghost" followers on my brand new account - if you click on the counter the list is totally empty:

Has anyone experienced the same issue, so... why that and how to solve it?

Thanks.

I'm guessing it was two spambots doing instant follows of new accounts and they have since been deleted. They are still showing because of caching problems. Sometimes clearing your browser cache can sort it out. Looking at your followers page is usually more reliable than the number on your profile.
If you've got a new account you are unlikely to get many real followers without doing some following first.
