Jack Dorsey, current CEO and co-founder of Twitter, promised in January the arrival of a “darker” dark mode in response to the complaints of some users, who considered that the night mode of the social network was not everything dark what should it be?
“The new darker mode is available to all users of the Twitter app for iOS.”
It has taken a couple of months, but the new “darker” dark mode of Twitter is already here and can be used, along with some new features, all users of the Twitter app for iOS. Those who use a mobile device with Android operating system will still have to wait to enjoy it, although the company has indicated that it will arrive “soon”.
The new night mode has been developed by the Research and Design team of Twitter and its objective is to offer more visibility options to make the conversation more pleasant to consume when you are in a poorly lit environment.

Users of the Twitter app can now choose between “Dim”, the dark mode that has been active on the platform since 2016, which is actually blue-gray, or “Lights Out”, the new theme for dark mode, which employs a palette of pure black color and that does not emit any light, since the pixels are deactivated.
This second option is the most recommended for those who want a “darker” dark mode, ideal for environments with poor lighting. Both can be activated from the Settings menu of the Twitter app.
Automatic night mode on Twitter
In addition to the new dark mode, Twitter also launches a new feature: “Automatic Dark Mode”. Basically what it allows is to enable the application to automatically change the light theme to dark mode when necessary. To do this, take into account the time zone where the user is and activate the dark mode when it is dark.
“The dark mode allows us to expand our accessibility offers so that everyone can use Twitter in the way that best suits their needs and their environment. We will continue to incorporate the comments of our community and our users and partners as we iterate on the product, “said David Kaufman, Product Manager of Twitter, regarding the launch.
