There have been countless studies released saying that our smartphones’ or tablets’ white light prevents us from falling asleep even though we already need to. That’s why a lot of devices and apps have started bringing a night mode option so that even when you’re endlessly scrolling on your phone or tablet, your body’s natural rhythm will not be stressed out by the normal mode of the app. Twitter rolled out its Night Mode previously to selected users, but now it is finally available for hopefully all users.
If you’re one of those that previously did not have the feature, you can update your mobile app now as it will probably have the Night Mode this time. All you have to do to activate it is to click on either your Profile icon or the Navigation Menu or the three horizontal lines you see on the left side of the screen. When the menu slides out, you will now see the Night Mode in between the Twitter Ads and the Settings. So just toggle them on or off, depending on whether or not you want it.
It will give you an opposite-of-day color scheme, meaning the background is black and the text is white, as opposed to the usual white background and black text. So really, it doesn’t have to be night for you to use it, just when you want your eyes to rest. We do wish though that eventually, there will be an IFTTT integration or even a built-in detector that will automatically turn it to Night Mode as the night falls and then bring it back to non-Night Mode when the sun is up.
You can update your Twitter app through its Google Play page. If you still don’t have the Night Mode, it will get to you eventually. In the meantime, go to sleep if it’s past your bedtime.
