    Dear Blackhatters..

    Today I had my instagram account 'disabled'. I am quite pissed off as I spent a great deal of time working it up to 12.5k followers.. The first 9k were bought all fake but then I have being using XGramBot & InstaGetPro (to a lesser extent) to get the next 3.5k followers..

    I have only used 1 account for both of these (from 1 IP) and tried to stay well within limits. I think my mistake might have been using the 'commenter' too much which would appear like spamming, although I am not pushing any products just merely trying to get comments back to my page.. Perhaps this triggered a response or maybe people flagging as spam. I don't know.. Anyway..

    Anyway I wanted your honest help in what I should do to get my account reinstated. I am quite rocked by this and disappointed.. :(
    Can I appeal or is there anything that I can do? Any help wpuld be appreciated!

    Best Regards,
    Michael

    Nothing you can do... Also if you're as "rocked" about your account getting disabled as you say you are I would seek professional therapy.

    There's nothing you can do, unfortunately. Good look with getting a response from Instagram's support - they never answer a god damn thing.

    No bots at all i literally built it up all real solid people.. I cannot figure it out i wish they would at least explain

    Theres a contact form you can get them at and in the drop down menu it says "disabled account" as the subject so maybe shoot them an email an see what they say.

    Hey, why is that? I've had them for over 6 months.. Was planning to use IGExorcist to get rid of them as my real follower base started increasing. Is there any reason for future? Advice would be appreciated.

    if you search twitter, a lot of innocent, non-commercial Instagram users are getting their accounts deleted today. (i see a lot of teenagers for example) it's possible your account wasn't targeted at all. it's possible this is a bug. i'm looking for more info.

    Anyway it's nearly impossible to get a reply for their support. It's not just hidden so the first time it took me 20mins to get how to email them. But out of 15emails the didn't reply even one.

    Instagetpro (I've got it from another website, not original;)) maybe the reason. because, one of my account disabled after the bot run, that's a fresh account with 0 followers but created 6 months ago. Also i didn't shared any pics yet. did you?

    WOW!!! Good News! So I woke up today and I have found my account re-instated. There must be someone watching above (lol)

    But seriously I had a look on Twitter as your suggested for 'Instagram deleting accounts' and last night there were shit loads of tweets from young people disheartened that their innocent accounts has been disabled due to ToS violations. It seems like the latest news is that it was a bug of some sort. Anyone have any more news?? That's crazy. Definitely taught me to be more careful though in future at all costs! :)

    I guess Instagram is playing FB game now.

    Sorry for your account, better start a new one.
