Instagram tests a new feature that allows you to remove followers

If your Instagram account is public, there's no real way to prevent people from looking at your posts. Even if you block someone, your photos will be just a special browser window. However, Instagram at least tries to give users more direct control over their followers list; the company has started a wide-scale testing of the ability to manually remove followers with a few clicks.

Users with special accounts have long been able to remove followers and immediately dismiss them from their content. But an increasing number of public accounts also gained the option of manually expelling people from the group of followers. These new "Remove followers" reports have appeared over the past few months and appear to be distributed to a larger sample of users - at least on Android.
