    When I use the api I can only follow 60 before a block. Yet strangely if I wait like only 20 minutes cooldown it seems to let me follow another 60.

    However if I do it through the main interface (no api) I can follow all 200 in one go.

    That's interesting. Is it 200 follows each 20 minutes from within the main UI? They themselves probably didn't code using 3rd party dev api so the rate limits could definitely vary.

    Pull the headers and automate if you can or outsource a coder if you can't - one preferably with experience in coding bots
