Soft/Hard/429 Rate Limits
Instagram limits the amount of accounts which can be followed in a given time period. Their limits are not completely known and could change at any time, and can vary from account to account.
There are three main types of limits:
A 429 limit is very common. The bot will automatically wait 1 minute before trying again. It can take between 1 and 15 minutes to clear, usually.
A soft limit will be hit occasionally and usually lasts about 10 minutes, after which following/unfollowing can be resumed.
A hard limit is hit less often, but lasts much longer, usually at least 12 hours, sometimes up to 48 hours. Note: if you constantly experience hard rate limit when following, please check that you are following less than 7500 people. That is the maximum instagram allows you to follow.
The bot can be configured to respect these limits and wait a certain amount of time before trying again.
