    I've been banned twice for following too many people in 2 days. Does anyone know the number of warnings before account is deleted? I'm gonna let it rest a few days. I grew to 2500 in a week all manual.
    Second question- I've followed a lot of private accounts- what happens when you have the total follow limit all taken up w/ pending private requests? I'm not able to follow past 5300 without having to unfollow before I can follow again- I'm assuming it's because I'm requesting a ton of private accounts. Is there a way around that? Do the requests expire after a few days?

    One thing is for sure buddy stop following private accounts as that 5300 will keep shrinking and you won't be able to follow full stop.

    You may also get temporary bans for unfollowing too many people at one time, keep that in mind.

    There's no certainty as to how many temporary bans you'll get before being deleted but following private users is definitely a no. Unless you've used a bot, then you have no luck cancelling these requests until people respond to you

    Yikes- it's hard to manually follow at a fast rate that doesn't take me forever without following private accounts too. I have FL but I have much better results going the manual route. I'm just going to have to figure out a different method. What's the follow limit? It used to be 7500... Is it 6500 now?

    Another quick question- I can't seem to follow at all- I've unfollowed 300 people. I don't have the ban notif- just can't follow. Any ideas? I'm a newbie at this.
