That's an interesting question.  If you do think that there is a failure whenever the scripting to load more content on a page is used, we should have a failure technique for that - anyone who wants to write up a technique (failure or success types both ok!) can submit the technique at http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/TECHS-SUBMIT/

Those likely already violate WCAG 2.0 in different ways, though off the top of my head I'm not 100% sure which particular SCs. At the very least, there should be a setting that disabled endless scroll and instead has a button to "Load more tweets" or whatever dynamically.
