It feels odd to suddenly have i.e. replies to tweets be sent ~90 seconds after I post the comment, instead of ~8 minutes later. Turns out that some tweaking of #Netlify settings, reducing some of the size of files on my site, and migrating from Netlify to #Cloudfront with a self-hosted shell #gitlab CI runner makes a big difference!
Managed to track down what the ~5 minutes of post processing was on my #Netlify site (thanks to the wonderful support from https://community.netlify.com/t/slow-deploy-times/30857/4) - now I wonder how else I can trim the deploy speed to something more reasonable
For those that haven't seen, #Netlify now supports branch deployments via the CLI (and the API)! https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/06/03/netlify-cli-branch/

I mean, I said that an hour or so ago, but that was before the site had deployed... Turns out https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/11/11/gotcha-netlify-lowercase/ caught me out again and isn't fixed until https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/jvt.me/merge_requests/638 is in (although I've done a temporary deploy from my local machine to get the site up).
