The decision to temporarily suspend the official Twitter account of the pro-life film Unplanned backfired yesterday with the account gathering over 200k followers after it was restored.
Today, Twitter has responded to the overwhelming support by preventing people from actively ‘following’ Unplanned’s twitter page.
“I was following Unplanned Movie, but Twitter has removed them from my follow list,” one user said. “Click follow, hit home and then go back to Unplanned’s twitter page. You won’t be following anymore,” another said.
Same problem here. I hit Follow. Everything seems OK. Refreshed page. Suddenly not following anymore. Follow again. Looks OK. Go to my Follow list and I'm not following. Go to UnplannedMovie page again, and the follow has been removed again. pic.twitter.com/pVgFfWREPM

I WAS following @UnplannedMovie and just saw that I wasn’t anymore. So I went to refollow and this keeps happening!

I checked just to make sure it wasn’t a Twitter-wide glitch…
