    Anyone experienced the stop in account growth after too much following and unfollowing? I think account gets limited and there will be no organic growth. How long after stopping follow/unfollow do accounts grow organically?

    Help.

    No, the only thing that stagnates your organic growth is poor/weak content, and or inconsistency in my experience.

    The last part of your questioning depends on your niche, how fast you are growing and your own metrics. Some accounts I have had I noticed organic growth beating follow/unfollow by 20k, others were 60k-70k. But there are so many variables its hard to give you an answer dude. Gotta start talking specifics, your niche, how many followers, how are you growing it, how many follows/unfollows a day, do you comment, do you create your own content?

    too hard to give general answers, they don't always apply to every niche or method.

    You know, I am in kind of quote niche; more like writing/ artist/author kinda niche. I did follow/unfollow til 11k. Also, I bought 1000 followers. Thus I have 12.x followers for now. I see other accounts that are same as mine grew from 11k to 25k in 2 months , all with organic followers, while I have less than 10 organic followers. I don't know what to do :( I do create all my content but I am losing all hope. I am just waiting for organic followers man.

    Yes to clarify that, when the account got to 20k or 60k followers, that is when I saw big spikes in organic growth (different for each niche of course). I'm talkin about good consistent 250+ growth a day without the use of automation. Just normal posting etc, and I have always done manual comments. Although I have automated, like/follow/unfollow... I have never liked to automate comments.

    I also never bought any fake followers, everybody's opinions on this will be different of course. But in the end I don't think it does anything for you.
