    You know, first time it was nice. I watched it for the second time and if you cause a little attention to the video I am sure it will kind of creep you out too lol.

    Nice song tho, love her voice.

    for those searches you need a bot that can feed the results of one search into another. whether it be followers>follower of followers>followers>followers etc. Our product is the only public bot with this functionality.

    Unless they are using an exploit, for the comment mentions running a search based on the media or profile being commented on and using that as a basis for followers followers would give vast amounts of users for the mentions.

    However, I doubt it is just normal commenting mentions, as these would surely be limited after a while, unless they have found a way around that. But still, even commenting without mentions gets limited if hit too hard. So again, a way around that is the trick. Not just finding enough users via feedback loop searches

    It can be done with decent gap between mentions. You can easily scrape followers, likers of any account or media.

    That's a thing, a decent gap means you won't be mentioning 1million+ any time soon

    But that isn't what the guy is doing. People are trying to figure out how a single account is hitting mentions so hard without trigging limits.

    I think I can guess his approach. I just need time to learn how to implement this since I am not a coder. Is there any free scraper to scrape for like 1k user to test?

    PS: my assumption might be wrong, so pls don't bash me :| Need to ask friends who know coding and don't care about IM :D

    I can get the scraping part (that's easy)...
    What is next? he is commenting on his post and tagging the accounts from his scraped list?
    By the way he is in 7.7m now

    He is Zuckerberg's friend.
    You need a trusted account, very old, from early insta times when it was possible to follow millions from one account.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. Maybe, IG lifts the limit after a few thousand comments. Or maybe, the more comments, the faster that they allow you to place new ones in correlation to the likes coming in.

    Description? Read the comments. Anybody have a good YT stats tool? I want to know how many of those 13mil views are from the last 2 weeks or so, and how much this 1peprs guy has pushed this video up.

    Very interesting case, BHW need to know about this strategy.

    This I think it can be right, but last time I checked with 123accs, I remembered the account was 2014. But I'm not sure.
