Are Instagram Bots Ruining Instagram?

The title says it all, are Instagram bots ruining Instagram?

I’ve talked before about the small business I started, and closed, called Creating In Cahoots. We were told to use an Instagram bot called Kicksta¬†(previously¬†Instagress) to help quickly grow our Instagram followers. After many interactions with the platform, and other bots, I am starting to think they are ruining Instagram.

Have you come across any rude, nasty bots? Have you used any that you like and feel they’re not hurting Instagram?

I wish Instagram would close off their API to bots, but I don’t I’ll get my way. Am I crazy or do you agree?

Recently bought an Arduino Starter Kit from Amazon. Looking forward to a few videos playing around with it.
