Some user feedback: I’ve noticed that profile pages scale with the number of users followers/following.
For example: rcteam (3.6k following) had a loading time of 20.77 seconds according to developer console
Vaelariuscrypto (referralking) (500 following) has a loading time of 4.21 seconds
New users in my testing have had a loading time of ~.5 seconds.
It’s definitely a use case that affects a lower percentage of users, but i would guess it could be fixed using lazy loading on the following/followers list.
