Title attribute missing from iframe widgets



I’ve noticed that within the last few weeks, the title attribute has disappeared from twitter iframe widgets.

The title attribute is helpful in an accessibility context, as outlined by WCAG 2.0: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H64.html

I haven’t found an easy way to add title attributes to these iframes without a lot of custom js.

Is there a reason the title attribute was dropped? Is there an easy way for developers to add it back?

Missing Title Attribute for Widget iframe?

Thanks for the report. This was not an intentional change and the title attribute on the button widgets will be added back with our next deploy. Apologies for the inconvenience.


Thank you Jake. Are you able to tell me when the next deploy is scheduled?


The title attribute is now displayed on Tweet button and follow button iframes.



Just circling back on this, I can confirm that a fix for this on timeline widgets was deployed recently.
