What is Mobile Accessibility? Edit

I use the Twitter account @PerBusch to continue the work of my Open Letter Initiative. Mainly I use Twitter as a blog and/or news ticker for everything related to the term Mobile Accessibility.

On this page and on the following pages I have sorted my tweets respectively the commented bookmarks to make them better searchable.

Note: I had to remove all hashtags (#) at the beginning of tweets. Otherwise the MediaWiki software would convert the # into a list number.
