    I was reading methods which say you can follow 1500 a day and if you get the lockout wait 4 hours and it will work again. But this no longer seems to be the case.

    Ive been stuck for two days now on 500 following and it wont let me add more.

    So how am i supposed to get more follwoers if it wont let me add more? i guess just start repinning loads? i think i read the limit for that is 200k per day if thats so then it will take alot longer to run out :p

    You get a lock when you get to 500 follows. The lock breaks when you have been followed back by 30 or more people. I dont exactly remember when the second lock occurs but here a an easy trick for you. Unfollow 50 or 100 and follow the same amount of other ones. Some will follow. Repeat the steps and reach upto 30 followers somehow. Then you are good to go from there.

    I suppose if they arent following me back then they are dead weigths anyhow right? So i should unfollow everyone that isnt following me? Ie they surve no purpose do they and hinder my progress?

    yep that's what the unfollow scripts are for. Try to wait a day or so after following before unfollowing.

    Definitely do that, get a soft that can do the follows and unfollows for you, set it to unfollow after 4-7 days just to give them a little time to respond and so it doesn't look like you're doing this immediately.

    FYI if you follow someone and then unfollow them, it still shows up in their feed that you followed them (even if you aren't anymore). Tested it out with a few of my accounts just to see what happens.

    I would never follow more than 300 daily. Not worth risking your account.

    I would make a backup list of everyone who has followed you too, that way if something DOES happen to your account, you have a list of people who you know were willing to follow you.
