    Hey guys,
    I've been using a follower-bot for two days (probably about 300-500 follows per day, but spread over the day like with followliker)

    Now i cannot follow anyone anymore. I once had this with my very first account where I was starting out, I remember that I can follow other accs after a day or two days pausing but I was limited since then to like 30 follows per day or something???

    Anyone encountered this? SHould I open up a brandnew account and start all over again? Will my account now be "follow-limited" for the rest of its life? What is going to happen with my account now?

    How are you scraping users to follow? Are you only using a few keywords?

    how long has it not let you follow or limit your followers? try unfollowing everyone like 300 a day until your follow list is cleared and then see if it still limits you. i had something simaler happen and this fixed it

    If you follow 1k more then you have followers twitter will not let you follow more people until the gap shrinks.


    That is why you unfollow so the gap will not be more then 1K
    I have personally experience it.

    If tht is not the problem, then I don't know what else can be except the obvious block from twitter.

    wait a bit more i guess, unfollowing doesn't play any role in this
    or just start it from scratch not overriding the safe settings of followliker, not that you f*cked up a well-established account :)

    Take a break for a couple of days. I would also bump up a couple of seconds for each following delay just incase

    i had the same thing happen to me with a IG account 2 days ago, that has about a 100 following to follower difference. i stopped running FL for a day, and tried following people manually, and i was able to follow after 24hrs. i changed my settings to follow the default amount on FL and now its working again. i think its only a 24hr hold because i followed to many account in a short period of time. try that and just work with your settings on how many people you follow. it worked for me.

    As others have stated, its best to just wait 24-48 hours. Maybe once you have some more followers you can scale up your settings, but at first its a crapshoot.

    Best of luck

    Hmm Yea it works again and i also increased the delay plus mixed in liking pics and shuffle it. Still i dont Know how others can pull it off to follow 500 plus accs per day everyday

    A theory of mine would be because of the following vs followers ratio. So i will try to keep that a lil bit down plus try not to go too hard on the followings per day.

    Can keep This thread updated if people are interested.

    My second acc Is following 302 accs and got around 28 followers. Started yesterday. Ratio Is Not good isnt it?
