    He said he ain't following and unfollowing on the same day tho.


    As already said, it's just a temporary ban and it happened to me too. It'll go away even tho no real message of "going to fast" appears when trying to follow manually, the button just turns grey again. I was also able to still unfollow, which was very confusing, but I kept unfollowing until I got temp banned and after the ban going away I was able again to follow. Not sure what's going on there, maybe the algorithms change and they see what you're trying to do so instead of banning from unfollowing they're restricting you to do what you wanted to do next.

    It can also be 'cause unfollow/follows count as "relationships" now, and there is only a small amount you can really do per day, so if you end up following and unfollowing at the same day it might cause you temporary blocks.

    But yes, I can confirm it also happened to me. Nothing you can really do, you'll have to wait.

    Before starting unfollowing I would recommend waiting a day after stopping following. I used to get those temp blocks all the time but now I stop following - wait a day - start unfollowing. Works great

    How many unfollows/hr or day to avoid this temporary suspension?
