There are a few reasons to like the dark mode function on apps, desktop sites, mobile devices, and your computer. Not only does it have the potential to reduce eye strain and potentially help you sleep better (though the science isn’t definitive on that front), it can help extend the battery life of your mobile device by keeping most of the pixels dim. 

On Twitter, you can enable Dark mode and select between Dim and Lights Out options. These let you pick exactly how dark to make the screen. Lights out is a pure black background, while Dim is a dark blue. 

You can enable dark mode options on Twitter with just a few clicks or taps. Here’s how to do it.
