seems like it’s less work to make an accessible web site than it is to find out and implement the legal bare minimum of accessibility that you can get away with— Zach Leatherman (@zachleat) August 19, 2019
The golden rule of ARIA tends to be "don't use ARIA."— Lindsey Kopacz 🐞 @ ReactRally ⚛️ (@LittleKope) August 19, 2019
Semantic HTML does so much for you, and it's improving every day!
For me, the best time to use ARIA is when I've already tested something on a screen reader and I've decided it needs more context.
90% of consulting is asking people to list the constraints of the project on a whiteboard, and write their current approach next to it, and the consultant's job is to drink coffee quietly while they look at what they just wrote.— Actual Doctor Galaxykate (@GalaxyKate) August 19, 2019
When people point out your privilege to you, it's not to say "Shut up. You don't have problems." It's saying "Here are the problems you don't have, the things you don't have to think about."— Amanda Jette Knox (@MavenOfMayhem) August 19, 2019
Talking about privilege isn't meant as an attack or to belittle someone who has a lot of it. I know plenty of straight, cis, white men who struggle. They just don't struggle with racism or sexism or homophobia or transphobia on top of the other stuff.— Amanda Jette Knox (@MavenOfMayhem) August 19, 2019
About those forms..... I got curious about modern techniques for styling checkboxes. There are so many SUPER COMPLICATED demos out there... quite old.— Jen Simmons (@jensimmons) August 15, 2019
How about a new, simple one? In only a few lines of CSS, I styled a custom checkbox. No JS. No hacks. https://t.co/y3QR2wdWct
The guy with the hammer according to reports/photos had a bunch of spare magazines strapped to him.— Mallory Moore (@Chican3ry) August 18, 2019
Now ppl are arguing whether the ppl who removed his hammer and threw it back at him was a bit too hard.
Massive respect to ppl facing down fascists with the stakes that high.
Noone owes it to fascists to give them a fair crack to get the hammers out first.— Mallory Moore (@Chican3ry) August 18, 2019
The first job of anti-fascists is to get rid of fascists. Public relations can wait. The media has been very clear they'll broadcast outright lies about concrete and bullshit.
there’s this sweet little girl sailing across the ocean to raise awareness for climate change, and conservative British guys named Nigel Beanmeat who look like dried birdshit are absolutely losing their minds— L Ron Mexico (@LRonMexico) August 18, 2019
Coming to realise that many parts of the Web Component specification are hostile to users.— nick (@NickColley) August 19, 2019
This is a real example from this guidance:
Avoid this if you care about people using older browsers and assistive technologies. https://t.co/NtD672cQwM
Just a reminder from one underdog to another not to give up on yourself. You are stronger, smarter, wiser, more talented and more resilient than you think.❤️— Amanda Jette Knox (@MavenOfMayhem) August 16, 2019
Hello developer newbie,— Tonya Mork (@hellofromTonya) August 16, 2019
Put code & tools aside.
Step 1: understand the big picture of the web (context)
Step 2: develop your logical thinking (start with flowcharts)
Step 3: start developing your problem-solving skills
Now you’re ready to dive into tools and code.

the reason no one knows what a frontend developer is is because the title defines technologies used not problems solved
Dear England: It’s nothing personal, but our family—who would otherwise jump at the chance to get on a bike—has decided to abstain from cycling during our visit.— Modacity (@modacitylife) August 16, 2019
It has nothing to do with the weather. It has nothing to do with the hills. It has everything to do with the streets. pic.twitter.com/zB7lXvo3e3
This is one of the most fascinating political stories unfolding in the UK right now. Protestant Belfast dockworkers forming a loose alliance with Sinn Fein supporters to protest against the DUP, because they realise that jobs, Brexit and class struggle are more important https://t.co/KA0EiB0Kse— Richard Westenra (@RichardWestenra) August 16, 2019

me: your documentation is sub-par and discourages people from using your project
me: you think that fancy efficient code is more important than the code being readable
Getting a lot of tweets from non-disabled people telling me we shouldn’t call Greta Thunberg disabled. Each follows a similar message: “I can't see Greta as disabled. Her achievements are incredible.” I just want to quickly unpack this. 1/?— Frances Ryan (@DrFrancesRyan) August 15, 2019
