Circles: You've Reached Your Limit

I'm somewhat new to building circles and I've been getting an error message saying I've reached my limit.

Is this a glitch, a daily limit, or an overall limit?

I have seen people with 20 times the number of circles as I have, so I'm not sure how this works.

Can anyone clue me in?

Hi Annie,

You can be in an infinite number of circles, however, there is a limit of 1080 in members you can add to your own circle. The feature is intended to connect you with people you know personally and/or members whose style and taste you appreciate. If your circle is too large, you may miss out on a lot of interesting stories in your activity feed.
Thank you, I did not realize there was a limit to how many people you could include in your circle. Maybe this is something Etsy could expand, as there are so many people that I would have enjoyed adding if this limit wasn't in place.
Any way we can have 920 more interesting stories? C'mon make it a even 2000 :)

Why 1080 was that just a random number? I was pretty disappointed too when I reached my limit. I cleaned out all that were private, but was never answered that if someone favorites are private does that mean their treasuries are too? I like to see when people make new treasuries and hope I didn't uncircle them by mistake.
Dawn - I could not have put it better myself. I've carefully chosen the people and shops I circle and favorite, each has something unique and with all the growth Etsy is experiencing, I wish they would allow sellers and buyers more room for expanding our networking circles.
