    So today, I decided to use a very legit aged account and see how far I could push the limits before I hit a wall.
    I managed to follow 8k people, 15k likes and made 2k comments.
    No ban, no temp ban, no captchas.

    The account is about 2 years old if it matters.
    Has anyone else managed to do this?

    Sometimes temp bans comes after couple of days. You can follow a total of 7.5k people, how did you manage to follow 8k people and I'm assuming you didnt unfollow people

    There's no possible way he followed 8,000 users in a 24 hour span.

    How long did this take you to get to those numbers? It is possible, but I'm sure you will get banned if you did this in a short amount of time.

    I have been doing ~1200 follows ~1200 unfollows and ~2250 likes per day for the a past few months, increasing by single digits once a week or once every two weeks.

    Yes, it's because it's an old account and you can push the limits :)

    you won't have many bans anyway if you follow people and you wait for them to follow back I think, the only time you will get banned is because sometimes you can follow but people cannot follow you that is why you get blocked sometimes.

    i think he rounded the number

    however i remember i was able to do that with accs sometimes, there was a mass follow script and it was that fast, that ig wasn't able to restrict in time, so sometimes the following counter went above 8k lol with accs which had the 7.5k limit

    I can only say that he done this with a bot of some kind but I believe you can't even follow that many people with or without a bot.

    8k follows, 15k likes and 2k comments. So, 25k tasks. on 1440 minutes.
    It means 1 task at 3 seconds, for 24 hours. little impossible.

    Yes but they don't last long of course.

    I remember I did 30k likes and 5k comments in a span of a week before getting banned. Was well worth it since I got so much traffic out of it.

    I'm not looking to go overboard like this but:


    How old should your account be before you can begin pushing limits/ be less cautious

    I did this with 2 different programs running simultaneously.
    Still no issue with my account 24ish hours later.
