Some of the features that make it accessible:
- All links are keyboard accessible (and visual styling on focus as well as hover states).
- DM, Favorite, Reply, Re-tweet, and Delete links are all visible by default.
- Simple, consistent layout and navigation (and signed-in username always displayed).
- Headings and page titles are implemented for optimal accessibility. This includes an H3 heading (for author screen name) added to tweets to assist with screen reader users.
- Ajax actions are concluded with an alert (JS or ARIA) that notifies the user of the result of the action.
- Large default text size and high color contrast.
