Marco Zehe posted this blog last year about social media and accessibility. Under the "Twitter" header is a long list of one solution for crappy social media: 3rd-party clients, which can be built to make the original service actually work for people.

Recently, Twitter has announced their new API rules which would make things harder for clients like EasyChirp, especially the limited tokens part.
