If you were posting on a mobile connection or to many services, you might have noticed that after clicking “Submit Post” you sometimes had to wait quite a long time for the next page to load. This has been holding us back from adding extra networks and features.
Today, we’ve deployed a new architecture which should fix this. Now posts are pushed into a queue and then published from the queue. It’s all a behind the scenes change, but the bottom line is, it should result in much faster posting.
We’re also tracking how long each part of the process takes, so we can monitor and optimise those delivery times. Data galore.
If you notice any issues over the next couple of days, please let us know in the comments.
