How to Use Twitter Dark Mode

Dark mode (also known as Night Mode) is a popular feature that can reduce eye strain, especially at night. The Twitter night mode option is available on all official Twitter App versions and on the Twitter website. There are also many third-party Twitter apps with their own dark mode settings.

What is Night Mode on Twitter?

The dark mode of Twitter, much like the dark mode of YouTube, is a purely aesthetic option that changes the social network look within an app or on the web.

Enabling dark mode on Twitter does not change the workings of the site, nor does it add any additional functionality. Nonetheless, many consumers prefer to turn on dark mode, because in low light conditions it can be safer for the eyes and can also save some battery life on newer smart devices that have an OLED screen.
