Accessibility Comments: 

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.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.
