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.

It’s been a busy month or month and a half for the Everwall team—in addition to launching our new website in early October, we’ve also rolled out dozens of new enhancements to Everwall’s offerings. The most notable are shown below.
We’ve added a ton of new fonts to Everwall, bringing our total supported fonts to nearly 50. These fonts come from multiple foundries and encompass nearly every one of the web’s most popular fonts.
