Instagram Bots

I came across this article about a guy who talks openly about using an Instagram bot that he got a developer to make to gain followers and ultimately more recognition on Instagram.

I, personally, don’t agree with this way of doing things at all, as it damages the community some people work really hard at building.

What do you guys think?
