    6 weeks ago my 104 accounts unfollowed 700,000 users. My followers dropped by 20,000 (from 200,000 to 180,000). I expected as much.

    This round of unfollowing 700,000 users, my followers only dropped 3000 followers (From 406,000 to 403,000)

    I am scratching my head at why the difference? I expected at least another 20,000 loss. hmmm

    The bigger your accounts get the less followers you loose when you unfollow.I used to have the same,now when i unfollow 7k people i don't loose followers anymore.I am guessing it has something to do with your ratio ,for example if you follow 6k people and only have 4k followers your account looks spammy,but when you have 14k followers and follow 7k people ,your ratio looks better.

    I'm having the same experience. I agree with florin22xxl on this - I think as your accounts grow bigger, you get less followers that only follow you to follow you back.

    I am sure you are still losing 30.000 Followers. But since you reached a certain size you are GAINING organically at the same time and it evens it out.

    After following roughly 20% are pending unfollow once you do something they don't like (particularly spamming or unfollowing as mentioned.)

    After they leave usually the rest of your followers stay as followers which allow most kinds of promotion in their feeds.

    Good point. I noticed that followback increases with each cycle. New people see all the followers and trust the account more easily to follow. My followback is only around 20-25%... MP follows 500 a day, 100-150 follow back. Hopefully that ratio gets better this new cycle
