    Hi!

    I have just recently started working with Iconosquare, but I have already noticed several occasions where the data is just plain wrong.

    Examples:
    - Users in the group "Followers I don't follow back" are false, I actually do follow many of them.
    - Numbers in Follower growth are false both for me and for added competitors and sometimes the amount of followers stated on a given previous date can change over time.

    Is this a known fact or am I getting something wrong? I would still pay for the service but I have to know whether to trust the numbers (and therefore act on them) or not.

    No, I've noticed that too for some time. For instance my largest followers - when I look at the list, half of them don't actually follow me.

    I take the data with a grain of salt.
