Yeah if I stumble upon someone following me following 7000+ other accounts then I block them. Super unlikely they’d ever see one of my posts and most likely they’re just using me for the follow/unfollow thingy
I follow 1200 max. The reason why I do this is because I follow 300 people per. day and un-follow 400 people per. day. This rotation leads to 4 days of following, 3 days of un-following per. week. I also find that you don’t appear like someone who is just mass-following people in hopes of them following back when you follow a lower amount of people.
for what it’s worth, Iconosquare considers any followers who are following more than 2k to be “unreachable” in metrics. it considers followers following between 1k-2k to be “rarely reachable.” I don’t know what they base this on, though.
