I’ve been getting the same thing the last couple days. It’s some sort of spamming attempt where they are trying to harvest follow-for-follows. They send the request then immediately delete on their end hoping you’ll follow back with permissions that allow them to get certain info about you. Some seem to be gathering followers to ‘sell’ their account with high follower counts. Apparently some of the Xbox api allows them to get gamer tags regardless of privacy settings.
