What is TikTok's "You're following too fast" error?
What is the "You're following too fast error"?
You've exceeded TikTok's limit by submitting the "You're following too fast" error.
This means that you are temporarily unable or unwilling to follow new people.
On May 13, 2021, The following feature was unavailable on TikTok. This caused the "Couldn’t follow account” error when you tried to follow someone.
You can wait for TikTok to fix any errors until it is up again.
How can I fix TikTok's "You're following too fast" error?
How do I fix TikTok's error?
Wait for the error message "You're following too fast" on TikTok to be fixed. Depending on how many times the error was received, the error message may last for several minutes or longer.
If you are unable to follow any TikTok user, it is because you have exceeded the following limit. You can't do anything except wait for the error message to be removed.
What is the length of the "You're Following Too Fast" block?
It all depends. The "You're following too fast" block can last for a few, several, or more depending on how many times you have exceeded the limit.
If you follow several users after the error message has gone, you will be blocked from following them again.
Additionally, the block will have a longer duration. Once the error message has been removed and you are no longer blocked from following people, you should not follow them again. This will increase the block's duration the next time it occurs.
Is there a limit to the number of followers on TikTok
Is there a limit to the number of followers on TikTok
No, TikTok has no follow limit.
It is highly recommended to follow no more than 30 users an hour.
You can only find the exactly follow limit on TikTok on your account by testing it yourself.
Here's how you can try it yourself:
1. Follow as many people as you can until you get the "You're following too fast" error.
2. Ensure that you continue following other people for at least one minute until the error message disappears.
3. You can repeat the process, but this time count the length of each block.
You can use the limit to your account if you have the time.
What is the reason for this error?
The "You're following too fast" error was thrown because you exceeded the following limit.
TikTok, like every other social media platform, is trying to reduce spam and bots in its app.
TikTok may temporarily ban you from following people if you follow them too fast.
The most common reason you get an error is that you are using the follow/unfollow strategy.
Follow/unfollow is basically a strategy that allows you to follow a group of people in the hope they will follow back.
Please do not abuse the follow/unfollow strategy and keep it within limits.
You'll block yourself from following, which can hinder your progress.
What can I do to prevent this error from happening?
You can take steps to avoid this error from happening again. These tips will ensure that you are always free to follow others in the future.
1. Follow others during a time period.
Next time you follow others, be sure to do it in a regular fashion. An example of an interval would be to follow one person every two minutes. You won't get blocked if you follow others during a time period
2. Do not follow more than 30 people per hour
You should not follow more than 30 people per hour to avoid being blocked. TikTok's following limit for users is 30 per hour. This is the general guideline you should follow.
3. Don't use automation
Automating is a fast way to get rid of the following. This is because TikTok can detect automation and block you. Automating is also against TikTok’s Community Guidelines, and your account could be suspended.
TikTok says you tap too fast.
TikTok may also display the "You're tapping too fast" error. This error message means that you are liking too many videos without actually viewing them. This is a common mistake, especially if you are swiping through your followers' videos.
TikTok will make you think you're a bot because you don't act like a person by liking and swiping videos without actually seeing them. This error can be fixed by waiting.
You should stop following other people if you make the "You're following too fast" error. Instead, slow down and keep following others at regular intervals. You should also not exceed the TikTok limit of 30 users per hour. This will ensure that you are never stopped from following other people again.
