Twitter for iOS Gets a Night Mode



It’s twilight for Twitter on iOS. In a good way! The iPhone version of the app finally has an optional dark color scheme for your late night tweetstorms. I welcome the darkness.

  • Enabling night mode in the app just changes the colors from the bright default white and black text to a dim grey scheme similar to Tweetdeck’s dark theme. A little change that makes it more enjoyable when you’re tweeting in a dark environment. The feature was added to the Android version earlier this summer. [Twitter]
