        If you have a popular video and many people start following you, the only recourse is to follow back. This is the whole point of TikTok. No? I’m not following too fast or even randomly… I’m just following the people back that followed me in my messages. That should be allowed.

      1. Hi,
        Can you please help me because I’ve been following Charlie Demilio account and keep tapping Unfollow and follow. Now it’s saying you’re going to fast slow down. I waited about 14 hours and I went back on TikTok. I went to Addison’s account and tried to follow her and it said the same thing and I don’t know how to fix it so please help me thank you.

  2. It’s been 7 hours, I’m still in jail. And I love pet, cop and gaming meme videos the most. I follow those like a sucker, and I got thrown in jail. There literally should not be a ban anymore if this is true.

  3. i cant like videos. just because im on it all day and watch these videos and then i can’t like them because im on all the time. wig! manage the fake account properly not people liking videos. what do you expect when most videos are 10-15 secs long. thats the point!! people are gonna like a lot of videos in a short amount of time.
