    I like where this is going. I'd love to ditch the dead followers.

    Well there is no automated way to do that yet, but it should be easy enough to program. Just have the bot check each of the followers accounts and if their last post is more than 30 days then unfollow.

    Er they're just inactive..not fake. That's only going to reduce his appearance; the more quality followers the better!

    There is no additional way of doing it. Except you can try and create a bot that will go over and flag them as fake ones.

    Either way it is a very slow process. As InstaGram has a new implication on blocking and unblocking followers numerics per hour :| It's 200 at the moment as we speak. So yeah it's really easy to grab fake followers but hard as nut to get rid of them

    No longer works, any other suggestions?

    "
    • NEWS: Yay. Instagram has stuffed with the site again. Now there have been additional limits placed on the site such that rather than being able to remove 80 users per hour (which was slow and annoying) it is now limited to at most 10 per hour. I am hoping to get some response from Instagram, but they have been quite unresponsive in the past, so who knows. Sorry for the inconvenience
    • IMPORTANT: Instgram has changed the rules again. Third party applications, like this one, can now only determine a maximum of 120 of the users who have liked a photo. This means that if you have significantly more than 120 likes per photo there is a VERY GOOD RISK that you will inadvertantly delete active accounts if you use this process.
