Twitter’s Patrick Traughber announced today on, well, Twitter that the Lite, mobile, and Windows 10 Progressive Web App (PWA) versions of the social network have now gained support for image descriptions.

This new feature essentially allows users to type in a text description for their tweet’s image attachments which can be used in Twitter searches and for those unable to see the images properly due to a disability.

Despite Traughber saying the feature is now live, it doesn’t appear to be showing for all Windows 10 users just yet which suggests that a rollout is in effect.
