We don’t have an explanation but we aren’t hating it either.
In the past few days people have noticed a huge spike in the number of Instagram followers they have on their account (despite not receiving a mountain of follow requests)?
Ranging from 10 or 20 new followers to 50,000 (so jealous of that person!), a number of accounts have reported a rise.
Could it relate to a number of bots being reactivated? Or is it a glitch in the system? Or has Instagram been counting our Instagram follower count all along?
Either way we will take the extra few numbers.
Did your account change in recent days?
Is anybody else’s Instagram tweaking or something !? 😳😳😳 I just woke up from my nap to 3,000+ new followers ! 😱 I’m scared

Did Instagram just credit everyone with new followers or did fake profiles get reactivated? Numbers are up.
