How to activate night mode on Twitter

| By
If you are a night owl, you can reduce eye strain by activating night mode on Twitter. It is available on the web, Android, and iOS.

Whether you are a night owl browsing Twitter endlessly or you want to cut down the brightness and watch the true colors for a more pleasing experience, Twitter’s night mode is what you need. Night mode has now become a de facto standard for all services. It is similar to the Dark Theme on YouTube for the desktop version, but instead of a black theme, Twitter adds a dark blue theme.

Twitter’s night mode has been there for long on Android and iOS versions, but it recently made its way to the desktop version. Though it has arrived late to the party, it is a welcome addition for desktop users like me.

Here is how to toggle on Twitter’s night mode on the web, Android, and iOS:


  1. Click on your profile photo at the top-right.
  2. From the drop-down menu, click the Night mode.
