    Somehow I must have reached my follow limit yesterday on one of my accounts... I only went up to 670 though and I go to around 600 all the time, but FL is giving me an error -
    Last response code: 400 -> You are unable to follow more people at this time. Learn more here. was received from twitter [nutritionfitspo]


    So I sign into my account and try to follow someone, and when I try to follow someone it says at the top "you are unable to follow someone at this time - read more here", but when I click it, it doesnt give a definite answer why I can't follow anymore


    When I unfollow a couple people, then it lets me follow a couple other people, so it must be my follow limit...
    I also realize its doing this same exact thing on another one of my accounts...
    My question is, will this ever be fixed or is this account basically fucked now?

    What is your hourly limit set at?
    And yes it will be fixed, just give it 24 hours or so.

    I was unaware any of the settings were even for an hourly limit..
    Follow limit 10-15
    daily follow limit (was 600-700 when I went over limit) 500-600
    delay follow: 15-30

    "follow limit" is the hourly limit. Anyways, just don't be so aggressive in the future. You should be able to follow people again before long.

    Had the same a few days ago when I wasn't allowed to follow more people when I followed 750... it was all good from next morning and I today I followed over 900 with no problems.

    Some people might know it better, so correctly if I'm wrong... As I understand you can follow 1k people with in 24 hours so if I try to follow 600 people in the evening and then 600 more people tomorrow morning so in fact I'm following 1200 people within 24 hours (so FL will stop following in the morning when it reaches 400)... Would it be the reason?

    you got a big issue out there, better contact your lawyer, and sue the network for limit restrictions...its the only way, to remove the restrictions. :)
