    I am learning python thought it would be fun to put it to use. Has anyone on here written an instagram bot in python?

    Using iconosquare with selenium to login then scrape info to lxml

    One feature I really am interested in is how well different comments convert.
    "Comment x" posted on this list of users how many start following after getting the comment

    Maybe create stacks of like and comment to get a higher conversion rate. Seems more natural than just liking or just commenting.

    I just wanted to see if anyone had attempted something like this.

    My bot is in Perl. Some parts in python for quick testing.

    You'll need a DB to know where you posted your comments and a DB where you store followers/following to be compared side by side later. This is how you can calculate a return rate.

    "Seems" is not a scientific term. "I have compared 10 various techniques on 1k users each and have the following results" that IS scientific.
