When users come to Twitter.com, the first thing they want to do is read their timeline. We’re currently rolling out performance improvements aimed at delivering this content as fast as possible. This ultimately has led us away from the now popular client-side rendering model to a more traditional server-rendered model to allow us to reduce the amount of steps between the user and their timeline.
We’ll explain how we measure Time To First Tweet, how we re-engineered our front end to make this as fast as possible and what our next steps will be to improve our users’ experience. We’ll demonstrate a pragmatic approach to web performance that can help you make the biggest positive impact on your users experience.
Dan Webb is a software engineer based in San Francisco and the Engineering Manager of Twitter’s Web Core team.
