    I keep getting the "you're temporarily blocked" message when I try to unfollow somebody. Even manually, it just won't work.

    Does this mean my account is toast?

    You unfollowed too many people today. I think your unfollow ban will expire in 12-48h. And be careful bcoz if you get more than 2 or 3 unfollow bans your account can get permanently banned from unfollowing other people.

    The magic word in that error message is "temporarily". The account is not toast, you just triggered a cool down period. Take it slower next time.

    OK thanks, so how many can I realistically unfollow?
