- Limit the amount of accounts it tries to update at one time

4K Stogram idea:

The program seems to be updating EVERY instagram profile I have subscribed to. The problem with this is I have saved A LOT because of how easy it is to just copy and paste a username into the program. I believe it would make more sense for it to roll through these accounts and update them a few usernames at a time, or however many you believe is appropriate? Because the program seems to be trying to update them all at the same time and it isn't working very well.

Now this is a MUST-HAVE, as since last month Instagram started to limit bulk connections.

If you run 4K Stogram with lots of subscriptions, it keeps loading forever or sometimes quickly report loading as finished (wrong, it haven't even started!), but if right after this you access instagram.com directly you will get a generic error (the same that is not being handled by 4K Stogram).

After the abuse stops, in a few minutes (less than 5) instagram works fine again. Though, you need to update each user manually to avoid reaching Instagram's limit again.

My suggestion is to add an option of how many accounts to fetch simultaneously (one at a time is a bad thing as I have seen some profiles taking forever to load while parallely others loads instantly).
A more definitive approach is to add an option to limit 4K Stogram's max parallel connections, it would also help a lot on bad connections.
I tried rate-limiting in a hardware firewall, but 4K Stogram doesn't handle any type of download/connection errors at all (it doesn't appear to timeout when loading something from a bad server, it just stucks).
