From Yesterday I am seeing abnormal number in real time in Google Analytics. Attached image below.

I am seeing 3939 active users (as per real-time content section) but showing 54552 in real-time. Is something wrong with my website?

We also experience this behavior, normally we have approximately 1,700 users online, and yesterday, September 9 between 12:00 am and 12:30 GMT we observed a peak of 23,700 which was then reduced to zero, and then returned to its normal levels . 
Today we review the audience report in users and sessions and do not observe this peak.
Best regards

We face the exact same issue, yesterday and today, the count was suddenly increased to a very high abnormal value then reduced to zero, and after that returned to the normal reading. Any thought about the cause behind this?

today October 29, 2019, we also experiencing the same kind of abnormality with traffic sources.
The numbers are not in the thousands. Is this a bug with the counter?

We also faced the same issue yesterday, the realtime count was somewhere around 6000 but the report showed total users to be 722. It happened for sometimes but got back normal soon. 

Today again the same issue persists (screenshot attached; it is of the mobile GA app) realtime user count is 601 whereas the table below is showing 125 total users. 

What is the possible reason for this? 

We did not make any changes in GA setup and the tracking code. This is not a good thing if it is happening again and again. It gives a wrong idea during analysis. 

Please look into it.

We have same issue through real-time API.
Number of active users grows up and then down to normal values. With no impact on Audience report.

we're having the same issue. showing 900+ active users when it's only 120. What's this issue? any feedback?

we display the realtime analytics dashboard for three of our accounts on a TV in the office, we're getting exactly the same issue occur to one of the accounts every two to three days (we know about it as the sales team go nuts thinking it's real traffic). 

The 'Right Now' counter will hit the hundreds, whilst the list of pages viewed still shows the standard traffic. 

After a period of time, it'll revert back to zero

From Chile country, we have the same problem.

The counter is very high value, anyway the correct value is much smaller.

We're experiencing the same thing for the first time today.  I'm showing about four times the active users as all other metrics indicate. As long as it doesn't affect the other longer-term metrics I'm not overly concerned about it, but it's a bit annoying.
