Twitter is one of the few applications people utilize to find the latest happenings worldwide. If you’re a person who prefers using Twitter in low light conditions, you can enable dark mode on Twitter to reduce eye strain. Whether you’re using Twitter on a smartphone, Windows 10 desktop, or web browser, Twitter has a built-in dark mode for all versions. You don’t need the help of any third-party software or extension. For dark mode, Twitter offers two different options.
- Lights Out – Brings pure black background to Twitter.
- DIM – Brings dark blue background to Twitter.
