What does it mean when a user has 5 "follows", but when you click it it says they aren't following anyone yet?

@ejbarnescomix have you tried opening their profile in a new tab? there's a bit of weirdness with mastodon where profile data doesnt get federated over immediately, but viewing it on the original instance will show you all the data!

i'm not sure exactly what causes it but it's the same reason people's boosts sometimes don't show up if you view their profile in the web client

@ejbarnescomix I feel like they only show you followers from your own instance (at least that's what it looks like to me with Tusky)?
