This is good news that the WCAG WG may consider creating a failure for
endless scrolling!  Skittles.com is a good example of this.

This failure may be a good place to start:

This sufficient technique could also be used as a bases for a failure.

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

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.
