Have you ever wondered why a prolific account doesn't seem to have any followers?

It may be that it has lots of followers, but its numbers haven't been updated on your instance yet.

(For example, FediTips has 1.3K followers, but on your instance it may seem to be a different number.)

To see the most up to date numbers for an account, go to their profile page and click on their profile picture. This will open their home instance profile page with the most accurate info.

@feditips Is there an easy way for an end user to force an update? This seems a bit a bad thing for the fediverse if everything's showing inaccurate numbers.
