It seems as though you fixed one thing, and broke something else in the process.
A large number of our users are complaining that the f/f counts (that we compute from friends_ids() for example) are woefully off (in the order of several thousand) from the counts displayed on Twitter.com. Before yesterday, it wasn't like this. The counts from friends_ids/ followers_ids were usually quite accurate; now they are totally inaccurate. Why on EARTH must you guys consistently break things before every major holiday weekend?!?
