    I think IG may have lowered their follow limits. That, or they now count a private account follow (that hasn't followed back) towards your follower counts regardless of you going back and unfollowing later. I've been testing this tonight, and my follow amount keeps going day.It directly correlates with the number of private accounts followed. For instance, if I follow 4 new people, 2 of those are private. Then i go back and unfollow those two privates, I still cannot follow 2 new accounts. If I then go back and unfollow the other 2 public accounts, I can then go back and follow two new accounts. Unless there is a script that runs every few hours to cleanup the private account follows, this is what I'm dealing with currently.

    So the question now is, how to get around this with my remaining follows left (was 2000, but through testing down to 1800). Boo!!!

    What real user on earth follows more than tens of people in any given day? If people expect their IG accounts to last more than a few months, you should make your follower growth seem natural.

    I never said I was following a ton of people in a day. I think you all read into this incorrectly. I did this over the course of a few days- the testing.

    I think there is something up though here and I can't quite place my thumb on it.
