    The weird thing is I had the account for over a year and only did a "like" bot my first three months. I haven't botted in 9 months so I don't see what I could have done wrong.

    I tried to log in to my account today and it says that it was "disabled." What can I do about this? Is there a way to contact Instagram account?

    Once a hipster, alway a hipster, there is no return, the only way to change a name is ask a mod/admin or register new(which is against the tos)

    What type of content were you posting? Maybe something Instagram flagged as inappropriate?

    That's the one thing I hate about social media sites, once your disabled that's all she wrote. On top of that they never tell people why they were disabled in the first place so you can't prevent it from happening again. The best thing you can do is use a bot that acts as close to "natural" human behavior as possible and forget about your old account, sorry.

    Super weird, happened to our business page 3 years ago but it was real followers. It happened after someone tried to log in from an unknown device multiple times (hack us). I think you just play it cool and let them know that it's you're genuine followers and see what they say but clearly new account man do it up asap instagramswag!
