    Instagram says I follow 401 accounts, but when I count the total that I actually follow on Instagram, Webstagram, or Statigram, I can only account for 100.

    If I use any "follow/unfollow" apps, it still cannot account for who the other 301 accounts are.

    InstagramCOM/Dave_IC3crew is link to my account.

    Anyone know why this is?

    those can be suspended accs, you followed them before and tried to unfollow them later, however they were already suspended at that time and you cannot unfollow suspended accs hence your following counter shows that bigger number

    I was following at one point 4k accounts then unfollowed pretty much all of them.

    Cool, that makes sense.

    Thank you.
