I hope everyone is having a great day I'd love to share my experience, so that other people will be more cautious and don't get into the same trouble as I have. Some people may have followed my journey to 10k, which I have successfully accomplished and it was something beyond imaginable for me to have an instagram account that "big". I was doing a mixture of botting and manual work. It was all down to my progress. Sometimes I'd stop botting and do everything manually and vice versa. 90% of the time I did a max of 400-500 follows a day but when I reached about 11-12k I've started doing double than that. During this time I fuc*ed up completely. Here is why: I am posting original content, username isn't that bad and I engage with my followers but when I'm not botting the account is basically shrinking. I have spoken to several people and they confirmed it to me that there is a possibility of IG limiting the growth of your account, which I believe is what happened to me. I did not run FL for almost two months and since then my account simply did not grow, apart from some spammers following me. Photos do get to the top hashtag but it makes no difference. To sum it up, don't be discouraged by whatever the shit happens to your account and just be careful! What is good for accounts of others might not be good for yours. I simply fuc*ed mine up somewhere in the middle and can only throw it away I believe. However, if anyone had any similar experience, it would be interesting to know what did you do afterwards!
