Last week Elon Musk removed headlines on X/Twitter "for esthetic reasons". This article describes a simple fix. "It's a browser extension named Control Panel for Twitter. (Yes, Twitter, not X.)." It works by reading the ARIA information used for accessibility and using the content to recreate headlines. This is a lovely example showing how accessibility benefits everyone. But if you're hesitant to read this article because, like me, you no longer use Twitter, do check it out if only to read the second paragraph discussion of "esthetics". Via Tara Calishain.
