My open source Instagram bot got me 2,500 real followers for $5 in server costs

This was light-years over my head, but a good read none-the-less. I’m not an automation kind of guy, but it is indeed a huge time waster running Instagram, posting then physically looking, searching, liking, commenting just to get a fraction of a return.

I have a few posts over 100 likes, one over 200, but on average I get about 40ish per post and that’s about 2 years worth of work. Oye vey.
