There are a couple of reasons why you might not be able to follow a user on Tiktok:

1. If you have been following a ton of people, let’s say you just go through a list of accounts and you decided to follow hundreds of people or you’re following every person that has liked or commented on every one of your videos,

Tiktok might view this as like some kind of bot or unnatural activity on your TikTok account, so they might limit you being able to follow anyone for 24 hours.

2. If you can’t follow a specific account if their account says is set to private and you have requested to follow them and they’ve denied your request, 

So if they have a private account and they said no you cannot follow them then you might not be able to click follow anymore or also if they have blocked you then you won’t be able to follow them anymore.
