    Lost 90, but you know what? I unfollowed all that I could, I could see only 4 accounts but it said 96.
    That has been stuck for days/week(s). And today, only following 4! :) Guess they cleared that up.

    It seems Instagram is once again removing fake/innactive/spammy accs... I lost almost a thousand followers throughout my 3 accs... Nothing to worry, really!

    Good to know too actually that those were probably 80 ghost accounts. Now you have a better idea what your real following is.

    Coincidentally yes but on a much larger scale, one of my accounts had 11K REAL followers (ALL real) and today when I checked the account I had a little over 9,800 followers. That's a drop of over 1,200 over night!

    I would really love to know how you folks all define "real." If someone loses 2k REAL followers, the capital letters don't make all those 2k bogus botted accounts somehow real.

    If/when you experience such drastic reductions in your follower count it is very easy to surmise that IG is on a banning rampage, and good riddance to 2k followers that were doing nothing other than bloating up your follower count. Someone must be really depressed today though because it sounds like hundreds of thousands of accounts might have been banned across lots of different IG bot networks.

    If you are going to run in these models - you'll need to get familiar with losing lots of accounts somewhat regularly and often replacing them. Just be glad today it was only your followers whose accounts were getting banned - tomorrow it might be your account that is deemed to be a spammer. Considering most of us are talking about manipulating the service for personal gain - it stands to reason this can happen.
