    What is real limitation for IG today? How often I can follow and unfollow?
    40 acc per hour? 6 acc per 5 minutes? 600-700 per day for older acc (3 month age)

    Why don't you test different settings and check what works the best for you

    You are doing something wrong. I created accounts this saturday that is already following 300+ people with no ban.

    There are not clear limitations. It depends on the age of the accounts, his previous behaviour and probably several other factors.

    If you want to play 100% safe with every account you should be under the 30 follow/unfollow per hour. As I said it could be more (some accounts can do 40-50-55 per hour) and not have issues, but this is just a number that should be ok for every Instagram account on the face of the earth.

    Limitations on Instagram vary for every account. It's like asking what's your credit limits.

    No I tried 2 accounts the same situation. Maybe problem is to follow 30-40 in 1-2 minutes. Because I follow manually.

    I just followed like 30-40 people in under 2-mins. I think what others are saying is true - throttling limits must be somewhat uniquely algorithmic.
