Website review #3 - Twitter Butler Digest

Published 2021/03/20 09:57

Introduction

Tibo submitted the website for his product Twitter Butler Digest as a reply to my tweet. Here is the website.

The good

Powerful in its simplicity

Everything is a single page. The request form, testimonials, and descriptions are all together. Simple and effective!

Testimonials

What better way to sell your product than with showing what people think of it! A nice touch and definitely a selling point!

Straightforward access request form

An email address, a twitter handle and a button. That's it. Probably takes 2 seconds to send. No complicated questions, just a beautiful responsive form. Kudos!

Clear description of what the product does

If you're visiting the page for the first time, you'd like to learn more about the product. The 4 bullet points are more than enough to get you up to speed and make a decision on whether to sign up or not.

Nice colour scheme

I always appreciate a dark colour scheme when I see one. Dark background on light text. Much easier on the eyes. Tibo does a brilliant job at creating a distinct colour scheme. Plus it has a nice contrast for accessibility!

Suggestions for improvement

Screenshots

The description is nice but I would like to see some screenshots of what to expect after I sign up. How do the reports look like?

Request Access button contrast

This is an accessibility issue. The Request Access button on the form last sufficient contrast:

<iframe> needs a title

The testimonials section is surrounded by an <iframe> element. iframes need a title in order to be fully accessible:

Twitter link needs a discernible name

The Twitter link at the bottom is basically an <a> tag with an <svg> inside it. Screen readers don't know how to describe this to their users unless there's some text describing it. An aria-label will do the trick.

Conclusion

A simple, effective website, with a clear description of what the product is about. Some minor accessibility issues.
