    The question is, why would you want to follow more people? Aren't you going to unfollow them anyway?

    PS: I never knew you could more than 7500 people on Instagram.

    nope I wasn't thinking about unfollowing anyone on that account because there is no point. I "apparently" can follow an unlimited amount of accounts, so then I can gain more followers.

    All of the people above are wrong, in the beginning days of Instagram you could follow unlimited amounts of people, as this account has. It is not uncommon, actually a lot of accounts have this from '10-'11. They usually have 100k followers with x2.5-5 amount of following, this ones pretty decent. I don't think the people on it will engage though.. Good luck :)

    You got it. I don't know of anyone with over 7.5k followings that can follow new people. So, just keep as is, or start unfollowing.
    Sorry if you got duped into buying this account believing you could follow an unlimited number.

    Don't follow massively. That could get you on Instagram's radar. Start slowly. The account probably wasn't unfollowing before. Starting off with a rush, may not be a good idea.
    Start at about 600-800 per day with long delays.

    Then after 1 week, increase by 200-300 and so on until you reach about 1900 unfollows daily. Anything over that may trigger Instagrams algorithm, which you don't want.

    Additionally, delete the photo showing your IG account. If anyone needs it, you can PM them the name. IG may have lurkers in here and that could get your IG account blacklisted or deleted for any number of excuses from Instagram.

    theres only so many people you can unfollow at a time - IG will suspend the account if you hit to many at once.
