    hey guys
    i have a 3 years acount of 188k. i usually follow 700 a day then on the next day i unfollow my "non-followers".
    each day i get the "u temporarly blocked" when reach the following limit, and on the next day i can follow again.
    but this time for the first time i got this massage:
    "action blocked - based on previous use of this feature, your account has ben temporarily blocked from taking this action. this block will expire next sunday!!"

    it never happaned to me before. what is that?

    how many warnings have you been waiting for ?
    i guess they made some new change .... some warnings then blocking for some days.

    guess you should try just 600 a day and stay below the radar.

    @188k I'm sure you can find another way to obtain followers besides f4f. With 188k u should gain a lot of followers by posting good content.

    You never got it because you just got lucky, most people don't get this warning. Consider this your one lucky chance.
    Most people get a few temp blocks for over following, etc then no warning they will get account deleted and banned after a certain amount of temp bans,
    but you my friend got one extra save, so lower it down and play it safe.

    i never got any messages from IG.
    they just dont let me follow at all.
    now on the 4th day, they let me follow 50.

    i also followed like 800-1000 and unfollow similar number for 2 months.
    now i still unfollow 100 in 1 minute, 400 a day.

    Yeah sounds like you been getting temp blocked and instead of waiting a full 24 hours you just kept at it. So stop everything for atleast a day and try again but dont follow so many people as fast this time. The accounts that i run on my phone I follow 600+ but i do it throughout the day in groups of 15-40 people a day

    listen, better safe than sorry. I personally only do MAX 400 follows a day and MAX 550 likes a day. Id rather take it slow.

    I tend to follow 350 people a day, and delete those who didn't follow back 7 days later. I guess it's slower approach, but with interesting tweets, you could do better.

    Sooner or later you will hit a block. Never follow and unfollow the same day
