Twitter finally rolls out Night Mode for desktop users. The feature was reportedly in testing earlier, but now it has been made live for end users who use Twitter on desktop.
With the Night Mode feature, you can change the color/theme of the social media website to make it easy on your eyes at night or in similar usage scenario. Twitter has introduced Night Mode for Android in July 2016, adding the feature to its iOS app the following month.
We first saw Night Mode coming to desktop in early August, though only some users were able to use it and the feature wasn’t official yet. However, a tweet from the company has shown that Night Mode for desktop is actually coming. The tweet reads
You can enable Twitter Night Mode for desktop via twitter.com. Log in to your Twitter account on desktop and click on your profile photo. A drop-down menu will arise. You’ll need to select the Night Mode option. Once done, you’ll be switched from white background theme to a dark navy theme.
The feature will remain active for however long you’d like. You can disable it whenever you want by following the same actions that turned it on. The dark theme of Twitter is striking and evident. Although the navy blue elements make the social media platform more pleasant when browsing at night or in low light, the design is also more tempting to some users who simply favor darker interfaces.

The feature is already available to Android, automatically turning the screen dark when night arrives in a way similar to how in-car navigation screens do exactly the same. Twitter Night Mode for desktop is not automatic, alas, but the quick toggle means you can flick it on the moment the Sun goes down.
The Night Mode feature is not yet live for everyone and may be rolling out in phases. So, in case you don’t see it now, don’t panic as you may get it soon once Twitter rolls out the feature for your account.
