    Hey guys,
    So I've recently started a dropshipping journey and today was a pretty big day - as I broke even for my first month woo!

    Anyway I don't have a bot yet and all social media following is done manually, it's a pain but it sure as hell works - broke 1000 followers in less than 2 weeks!

    Typically I just do it on the bus to work but today I dunno maybe the traffic was heavy or some shit and I ended up getting too carried away, and obviously went over the quota for the amount of follows per hour and got "temporarily" blocked - WHICH IS SO ANNOYING BECAUSE JUST BROKE 1k :(

    I did Google it but there seems to be no set information.. Basically is there a set amount of time I am blocked for? I've seen people say if temporarily blocked can range from 2-24 hours, id rather be safe than sorry with my little baby.
    Also is there a set limit for the amount of likes/follows/unfollows per hour? Because everywhere I look tends to be a different amount - just guess if anyone does know will be someone on here.

    Thanks

    That's kinda sad man. Having worked on it manually and you get block. Sucks, just wait for it though and hopefully it'll be active again.

    Do you have any idea how long? Should i wait the 24 hours to be safe?

    NOTE: I have access to my account, havent been locked out of it - pretty sure was just the follow feature that was blocked!

    OH really? Thats awesome so thank you man!
    Yeah I couldnt find any solid information anywhere about it, everything varied from 2-24 hours so I was thinking may aswell be safe than sorry! Quickest time getting an account to break 1k.

    Might start back at it later today, just need to be careful.

    Ive learnt my lesson!

    It's just a temporary block for 30ish or so minutes. No worries man you are OK!
