Twitter, for most people, isn’t enough if you don’t use a dark theme. By default, Twitter uses its light theme that’s not pleasing for eyes. Here’s how to make Twitter dark mode on Android, iPhone, and PC (web).

Dark mode is a popular theme that is also available in other apps and services, like Instagram and WhatsApp.

Twitter’s dark mode is more preferable because it’s comfortable. It reduces eye-strain, glare, and nice-looking especially when you’re in the dark. While some people turn dark mode on all the time, even during the day.

Another benefit of the dark mode is that it extends your battery life. It saves more since you don’t really need more brightness enabled on your phone screen than you do when you use light mode.

The more complicated explanation is that dark pixels don’t require much power, especially if you use AMOLED phones.

How to Enable Dark Mode on Twitter (Android and iPhone)

Changing Twitter’s light theme to a dark theme is easy. Twitter has two different dark themes you can choose: Dim or Lights out. You can also set it to automatically use the dark theme after sunset.
