Twitter Thinks its Users Take Desktops to Bed

A new Twitter desktop night mode is slowly rolling out to the microblogs’ users, providing a dark theme option for the platform…

Last year, Twitter introduced a dark theme or night mode to its mobile apps. Now, it’s bringing the option to desktop. It’s no secret that nighttime or low light viewing is harsh on the eyes and adjusting the display does not always provide the best experience.

Twitter Desktop Night Mode Rolling Out

9to5Google first reported the feature just a couple of days ago. While it seems a strange option for desktop devices, it makes sense for dark workspaces and other low light situations.

Even though this is a limited test to a select group of users, the Twitter desktop night mode or dark theme option appears in the drop down menu, accessible from the profile image in the upper right corner of the screen. It resides just above the “Log Out” option.

Apparently, the feature is only currently available to a limited number of users, but a spokesperson for the microblog confirms it is experimenting with the function. Although, Twitter remains silent about the night mode/dark theme feature, not releasing an official announcement at this time.

For users who want to access the feature without waiting for its platform wide roll out, there are some Chrome extensions which perform the same function. Firefox add ons do the same.
