AppleVis Editorial Team Note: This app has decreased in accessibility since its initial review in August 2010. Please see the comments below for more information. Original Comments: This app is excellent, not only from an accessibility perspective. Fully compatible with VoiceOver, this Twitter application has everything you could ever wish for to keep up with your timelines, searches, direct messages and even lists while on the move.

There should be a button labelled 'Compose' in the top right corner of both the Home and Mentions pages that you use to post a new tweet.
However, if this is similar to the Pro version I really wouldn't invest too much time and effort into this app, as it's been a long time since it was fully usable with VoiceOver and the developers have shown no interest in addressing this.
If you never need to tap on a hashtag, username or link, then I guess you can just about use the current version, but TweetList, Twitterrific or the official Twitter app all offer a far more complete and satisfying experience for VoiceOver users.
Well I have been using this app since the days of the I pod touch. This has been my favorite go to twiter app. However, it appears to be very inaccessible. For starters, in any timeline, no tweets are read. I just hear clicking sounds. I set up my account to work with this app and by scrolling through the list, I know something is there that voiceover isng reading. Also, in previous versions of this app, there were tabs at the bottom. I no longer see these tabs. I'm running iOS 8 if that makes any difference. In the mean time, what Twitter apps do you recommend.
The official Twitter app will do most of the basic things for you and doesn't seem to want to fight with VoiceOver overmuch. Plus, you don't have to pay for push notifications, which I refuse to do on principle.
