    Ok, so the biggest problem for bot users right now is unfollowing, but why is no one talking about the next best alternative? Blocking/unblocking. This has the same effect as unfollowing, and unblocking means that the person can still potentially follow you in future.

    As far as I know, blocking doesn't have limits. I have no experience with creating bots, macros etc. Is anyone able to make a program that does this?

    Obviously only block/unblock people who are not following you, the ones that follow back will still have to be unfollowed.

    Ya you can use the public API to do this for a few accounts. but if you're managing hundreds of accounts you'll need a more efficient way instead of creating alot of tokens

    plus unfollowing limit has increased a bit again. I can safely unfollow 700 a day... for now

    Sure. Go block 7k accounts while instagram is banning everyone and let us know what happens

    #BanHammerComingSoon



    More seriously, IG unfollow limits are returning so we won't need a way around it until next September :)

    They are banning everyone?

    I've heard some people say the unfollow limits have been raised, but others say they are still at ~300 a day. What is happening next September?
