“Despite its late start, Twitter had established itself as one of the more inclusivity-focused social networks over the past two years. ‘Twitter was setting an example,’ says Neil Milliken, the global head of accessibility at Atos. Now it’s setting a very different example. With no evidence that the company has shifted accessibility-related duties to other teams, there may be no one left to ensure the site complies with laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

Wired’s Kate Knibbs writes about how Twitter’s recent layoffs have negatively impacted the site’s accessibility features for blind, deaf and disabled users in the article “Twitter’s Layoffs Are a Blow to Accessibility.”
