I made the mistake of going on #Twitter recently so I could check whether a certain software dev team had made a statement regarding a bug in a recent release.
It took five minutes to load the page. FIVE MINUTES.
Granted I have a slow computer, so whatever, but how sad is it that the #Fediverse, an open-source project run largely by hobbyists, has a more efficient and stable web interface than the LARGEST SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM IN THE WORLD?
@eastcoastweb Well don't get too excited. It says on their website that the API is rate-limited, so if too many people access it the bridge will be forced to slow down. As they say, "the code doesn't scale, and that's by design."
