Yesterday we rolled out a significant improvement to real-time connection systems that power our social walls that reduced latency, errors, and reconnections.
Most of the improvements gained were due to one notable and unexpected thing we saw—an immediate reduction to the number of dropped connections and reconnects.
Because we were no longer erroneously causing reconnects, our concurrent connections was reduced by 8x and latency has significantly improved.
Not only did improving our websocket systems giving us all of these benefits, we also turned on Cloudflare’s Argo Smart Routing offering to speed up how fast data from our website and social walls get from our servers to you.
In regions where we do not have local servers (basically, anywhere outside of the US and EU) our customers and website visitors should now see faster speeds.

In addition to those new data points, we’re also exciting to be showing you the languages your posts are written in. This is something that’s been in the works for well over […]
