The admission first came from a Twitter spokesperson speaking to The Telegraph. "This is a bug, and our team is working to fix it," the spokesperson said.
Twitter explained further in a post on the site's support page. If you follow a user, that person may not immediately appear under your account's "following" tab. But if you click on their profile page, the blue box will indicate that yes, you are following that person.

Many Twitter users have long complained about the unfollowing problem, but it wasn't officially acknowledged by the company until Wednesday.
