Accessibility Comments: 

For the most part this works okay with VoiceOver.

However, the first two of the issues listed below are probably enough to rule this app out for anybody other than the most casual user of Twitter:

1. When moving through your timeline by touch or swiping, the poster’s name is not read by VO.
2. There appears to be no way of accessing links, hashtags of usernames included in tweets.
3. When viewing a tweet, there is one unlabeled button, which appears to be to view the user’s profile

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
