Talking Accessibility & Twitter’s Upcoming API Changes

August 8, 2018

By Ged Maheux

The Blind Side podcast with Jonathan Mosen on iTunesPodcaster and accessibility maven, Jonathan Mosen, recently had me on his podcast to discuss Twitter’s upcoming imposed changes to their live streaming and push notification APIs.

On episode 98 of The Blind Side we talk about what these changes mean for Twitterrific users and how they affect accessibility within the app. Even if you’re sighted, I encourage you to check out this interview which gets a bit more in-depth about why we think Twitter is revoking these features, how we’re dealing with the reduced functionality and what this means for the future of third party Twitter apps.

I want to thank Jonathan for inviting me on and helping us get the word out about these unfortunate policy changes that will hit Twitterrific users on August 16th, 2018. Check out The Blind Side with Jonathan Mosen on iTunes or via his website.
