twitterTwitter today announced that it is expanding its "night mode" option to its iOS app, allowing Twitter users to enable a darker mode suitable for reading tweets at night. Twitter first brought night mode to Android devices in July and after a beta testing period, the company is now ready to offer the option in both of its mobile apps.

Night mode can be enabled by tapping on the gear icon and choosing the "Turn on night mode" option. It is disabled in the same way, by tapping the gear icon and selecting "Turn off night mode."

Night mode should be a welcome addition for those iOS users who have been hoping Apple will implement its own Night Mode option, as it makes the Twitter interface much darker and more comfortable to look at in low light conditions.

Twitter's new night mode feature is rolling out to Twitter users starting today. The Twitter app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Thanks, T.

On a different note, I like Tweetbot's implementation better.

Wow, surprised it took this long... then again we're still waiting for it on iOS too. :p

I've been using dark mode for Tweetbot as my default theme since it was released.

Tweetbot is the only app on the app store which charge for an update. What a load of sh.it.
It positively galls me that software developers think they deserve to be paid money for merely doing their jobs.

This is a much anticipated feature for me. Would love for it to work automatically with iOS's Night Shift

Keep forgetting about the "official" Twitter app. Tweetbot blows it out of the water.

Eh?

The only reason they charged for Tweetbot 4 is because is was a whole new app. If you're complaining about paying £2.99 (whatever it was), perhaps stop using it and stop complaining.
