Pretty Simple: web, digital, social



Twitter has its fair share of accessibility issues. One of the biggest is that certain functions can only be accessed with a mouse (I have personally suffered from this when trying to access Twitter via my mobile device’s browser). With Twitter’s exploding popularity, and with various organisations rushing to utilise the service, issues around accessibility become ever more urgent.

Great to see, then, that an accessible web application for Twitter is being built (by Dennis Lembree, sadly not in affiliation with Twitter themselves). Addressing issues including keyboard access, Javascript dependency, colour contrast and navigation, this looks set to be an invaluable resource for many users. Twitterers can also follow the progress of this project at twitter.com/AccessibleTwitr.
