    Does anyone know of a bot that will allow me to unfollow ghost users? (without blocking them from following me)

    I really like fast-unfollow.com to unfollow non-followers.

    However, recently my following list has been too long and I'm too close to the max following, so I can't keep following new users.

    I tried to use fast-unfollow to just unfollow anyone but it caused some... fussyness with people. I had several commenters complain about me unfollowing them. Naturally, I don't want to draw attention to the fact that I'm doing this.

    So, I don't want to unfollow active people because I don't want to upset them. But I DO have a lot of inactive followers who don't comment or like anything.

    There are some apps that will let me see/unfollow ghost followers but they all make me do it manually and I'm limited to 20 per hour. That will take forever.

    So anyone know a bot that will do this?

    I want a bot that:

    1. Will make me unfollow users who have not engaged with my content for X amount of time

    2. Will NOT block them from following ME. I still want them to follow me to keep the high numbers, because pages that look popular will attract new followers.

    Do you know of anything like this?

    If not, I think my only alternative is to whitelist all my active followers, but I hope there is an easier way.

    (alternatively: do you know of an easy way to generate a list of my active followers that I can copypasta into a whitelist?)

    Instagram made changes that won't make this simple.

    You can only see a limit of 100 or 120 people who like an image. You will need to scrape your images for accounts that have liked and/or commented. Do this every 30-60 minutes and across something like 5-10 images, then hope you've got everybody who is active to add to your whitelist.

    From there, start unfollowing and pray. Lol.
