Image Descriptions

In March 2016, Twitter rolled out the capability to add descriptions to images in an attempt to improve accessibility for the visually impaired. As a government agency which strives for 508 compliance, we would appreciate the availability of Twitter image descriptions in Hootsuite.

  • Please adapt the usability of Hootsuite to also enable users to add alt text for Twitter! Leaving users without this option puts many of us at risk for compliance.
  • Come on, Hootsuite! Our organization will have to stop using Hootsuite for Twitter posts if we cannot add alt text to images. Hootsuite is a good platform, but when it blocks our ability to do something that Twitter now has built-in, then non-usage will be the norm. Please add the Twitter image alt text feature urgently.
