Twitter’s engineering team has announced a number of back-end changes, with the goal of improving the experience for end users. The new changes now allow dropping page load times to 20 percent of what they were earlier. There is a removal of “hashbang” (#!) permalink URLs. Twitter’s new structure removes many of the steps, and should help page loads reduce the time. The company also removed JavaScript execution out of the rendering path, and also maximized the JavaScript load with the goal of “reducing time to first tweet.”
