Many of you lovely readers aren’t on Twitter 24/7, so heres’s a blog retweet. Or a “re-bleet” as I like to call it.
This was posted yesterday by the European Blind Union (“The voice of 30 million #blind and partially sighted people in Europe”)
Dear #webdev people, if we are #partiallysighted we need to zoom to read on #mobile devices so please don't disable this feature! #a11y

In other words: yes, please use viewport meta to make content responsive. But don’t muck around with
user-scalable properties, as these restrict zooming.
Couldn’t be clearer, could it? We’ve been asked nicely, by those who are affected, so let’s not do it anymore.
