How to Turn On the Dark Mode Feature on Twitter


Browsing Twitter in the dark can be annoying if you are affected by too much light. To improve user experience, Twitter introduced the night mode feature to make the background black and the text white to reduce the strain on your eyes. Whether you are using a mobile app or a desktop, you can turn on the Dark Mode feature with ease.

Enable dark mode on the Twitter mobile app

  1. Launch the Twitter app on your smartphone and login if prompted. You will land on your Twitter home screen.
  2. In the upper left corner of your screen, tap your profile icon and a menu will fly out from the left side of the screen.
  3. Now select Settings & Privacy’ in the shown list and you will land on a different screen.
  4. In the General section, select ‘Display and Sound’ option and a Display and Sound screen will appear. To enable the night mode, toggle to the right and your Twitter will automatically activate the Night Mode. If you wish to turn the Dark Mode off, you just need to navigate back to the Display and Sound screen and toggle to the left.
