Twitter Night Mode was added a few months ago, and it has become wildly popular for people who take their smartphones to bed at night. However, a version of this feature for desktop had not been available for a while, mostly because people prefer using their phones in bed to their desktops. However, if you use your laptop in bed, then Twitter Night Mode could be coming to you soon. Already it has been spotted by a number of users. This feature is likely to be extremely welcome, enabling a more relaxing experience as you scroll through your timeline and tweet at your followers before going to sleep.
Twitter has not made an official announcement concerning this feature. However, some users have seen the option when they are logged in to their account. To check if you are one of these lucky users, click on your profile image on the top right corner of your screen, then see if the option shows at the bottom of the drop-down list that appears.
Twitter Night Mode is ideal for a deliberately darkened workplace, or evenings, when you probably prefer less light to help you fall asleep faster. The feature is a lot easier on the ees, transforming all the white space into a mainly dark blue interface, and the text color switches from black to white. Now, bright lights always seem a lot brighter at night, and this makes users tamper with their brightness settings of their devices, which is not always the best.
Twitter introduced its Night Mode for iOS and Android last year, so the fact that it’s now testing the same feature for its desktop site should not come as a surprise. However, one might be tempted to ask why it has taken so long to happen. In the meantime, if you find out that you are not part of the test group, you can still get the dark-display option on your desktop. The Chrome Web Store has some extensions that offer the same effect, as does Firefox.
