Anyone else figured out that "who to follow" suggestions on Twitter are false?


On my desktop Twitter page, there is a box giving me suggestions of "Who to Follow". It even says a suggestion and then says it is followed by someone that I am already following. It turns out that this is false. That person doesn't, nor ever has, followed the suggested person. This came to light when it said that my teenage son was following something that I deemed inappropriate and questioned him about it. I began hunting further... Anyone else experienced this or know how to change it?

    I checked several suggestions in a row by looking at my family/friends following lists and these suggestions were NOT followed by my friends even tho' Twitter said they were. In fact, I just checked another whilst typing this - again false!

    Thanks dougcarter4 - I knew I wasn't losing my mind on this one. I actually tried to tweet Twitter support about it as I could not find a phone/email contact. No response! Doesn't surprise me.
