    How can a Website like socialblade, provide a livestatistic, which updates every second?
    I think it would have to make many many many calls to instagram, to get the actual followercount. And I don't think, that Instagram would be happy with so manny calls. So how do they do it?

    Yes but, even the instagram api has limits in the number of calls you can do in a specific timeframe. And I think they have way more calls than instagram allows through the api

    They probably just use a ton of access tokens.
