Friendly achievement not working correctly?

My followed page says I am followed by 6 people (all people I am following) but the Friendly achievement is saying I am followed by 2 people and need 3 - is there a reason this hasn't triggered for me?

Step 1 in Friendly achievement is “you have followed three friends.” AFAICT, step 2, “three friends are following you” only counts followers who start following you AFTER you complete step 1.

At least, that’s how it seemed to work when I was accomplishing this badge.

Looks like you're right - I've had a couple of follows today and the badge has now triggered. Thanks!

Wow, that's incredibly annoying. I have three friends. Those three friends follow me. Bah.

That's good to know. And I've seen a few other people posting about this too.
