    Hello,

    I currently have 162k followers with a very low engagement, an average of 1500 likes per picture. I got my followers by following and unfollowing loads of people, but since a few weeks I keep getting blocked from following for a week. I used to follow 1-2k users a day. I always get blocked after following around 1000. I don't use bots, I follow/unfollow them manually. How can I avoid getting blocked for a week again?

    I used to follow as many as possible till I get blocked for a few hours, I did this for months & I never got blocked for longer than a few hours till a few weeks ago.

    I think this is just the limit your account has. Try and stay under 1000 for a week or so and gradually increase it, to see what happens.

    You are playing on a thin line lol.
    Really high chance of getting perm banned, let it sit for 1-3 days without following then try again, lower it down though. 1-2k follows / day is extreme

    Surprised you aren't perma banned for following so much and getting blocked often. Count yourself lucky and follow less people per day and don't follow them all at once.
