    the engagement is only ~½%. Is that good or bad for an account with 845k followers?

    from my experience that sucks. you can get a better engagement with 10x less followers

    Are you saying it is likely many of these are not real IG users, possible bots, or purchased followers? Maybe it's an internal botting scenario, i.e. most of the accounts are managed by the same individual/bot.

    they are real follower I think, like Hekke said, there was no limits when he followed them (long time ago), so a lot of these followers are not using instagram anymore (or made new accounts)

    That was possible before Facebook bought IG, and probably most of that followers are inactive
