I have some accounts hit in the last 24 hours all scraping themselves (almost none filters) all DC proxies. Strange thing is all accounts hit are very old clients, maybe it is because in the past I used api instead of eb.
Could it be possible the accounts hit did api In the past?
sad to see many affected by this just like I am, eager to work and figure out how we can prevent this in the future, have we collected any more data in last 3-4 days rather than speculation that its related to too many API calls?
Support confirmed with me that it is related to an API change with IG. They the API change was story view related - but obviously not because over 50% of the people in this poll who got hit weren’t doing SVs.
The accounts that I had that got hit were doing heavy filters on API for a long time, about a month ago I took filters down on all accounts except for these accounts cause they were all running fine. The rest of my accounts didn’t get hit, with the minimal filters. I have no other evidence, but could this be a rolling monthly limit on API actions? Like 6000/30 Follows?
Would explain scraper accounts getting hit without doing actions. Would also explain how some 3rd party viewing sites have gone down too (Piknu, Pictame, etc).
