We all know that Twitter aren’t staffed by the world’s sharpest programmers. But one would have hoped they would at least get their UI right. Which they blatantly don’t. For months I’ve been seeing two mysterious numbers in profiles. One labelled
following_me, the other labelled
I guess it will have to remain a mystery what those numbers mean. And if I were ambitious I’d do the few clicks now to check whether this is due to blatant fuckwittedness or simply because they’re into completely half assed localisations which they don’t even bother to test over at Twitter (cf

The Japanese localization is also crap. If you visit someone else’s page, it says “Following you” and “your followers.” Huh? How did someone else get my followers? Also, instead of finding a good Japanese word for following, they just transliterate the English into katakana. Very crappy.
Received data seems to be invalid. The wanted file does probably not exist or the guys at last.fm changed something.
