(Unsure if you already do this, but if not then please consider!)

When you Tweet photos, you have the option to compose a description of the images so the content is accessible to people who are visually impaired.

If you go the profile icon and click accessbility, it gives you the option to opt in to write descriptions of images you post, thus making tweets from SUSU more accessible to those who are visually impaired.
