Device(s) App Was Tested On
All buttons are clearly labeled, but there is a lot of flicking. Rather than having each toot be it's own element, VoiceOver treats everything like a separate element. Every single button under the toot is read when swiping forward or back. There is a few router actions though, which makes links and hashtags within tweets easier to browse, but navigating around the app takes a lot of swiping.

Is it better when you navigate by touch exploration?
No. It's not better when you explore by touch, IMO. You'd have to drag your finger down the screen to get past all the boost, reply, and otherwise buttons, so it's better to write to the developer and request a change. Toot operates much better, but it is not free. You can still drag your finger down the screen to read toots on here, though. I still think it doesn't work as smoothly as other apps.
