Dark Mode on Twitter now becomes Darker

For all those who have witnessed the Dark Mode on Twitter would realize that this so called ‘dark’ mode isn’t actually dark. It has a blue-ish dark shade.
Regarding this, many had their point of views; but one person took it to his tweet, due to which now Twitter gets a darker dark mode.

What was the complaint over the dark mode?

In response to a customer’s complaint that Twitter’s dark theme isn’t really black, but more of a blue-ish shade, company CEO, Jack Dorsey, replied that’s going to be fixed.

Though a seemingly minor tweak, dark-mode settings for apps have become increasingly popular; as a means of conserving battery life on high-end devices; and making easier on our eyes the apps we use often for long stretches.

Why is dark mode important?

The interest in dark themes has grown steadily since Twitter first debuted its own “Night mode” back in mid-2016.

This weekend, the topic made its way to The Wall Street Journal, which made the case for dark modes becoming a standard setting across all apps and devices — not only for ease of use and battery benefits, specifically on OLED screens — but also because it may help lessen device addiction, and improve sleep.

In other words, as TechCrunch says, having a decent darker mode is no longer just an aesthetic choice like skinning your Gmail with a cute photo; it’s an option that has real-world benefits. And for many, a dark mode is now their default.

Twitter’s dark mode, however, has been on the lighter end of the spectrum. (You can view a screenshot of its dark theme on Darkmodelist.com, where you can compare it to others.)

The app doesn’t go for a true black, but rather a blue-black shade. That’s being addressed, according to @jack’s tweet.

For those who are on Twitter anyway and addicted to browsing the timeline, a “blacker” dark mode will improve their use of the product.

Neither Dorsey, nor Twitter itself, has yet shared more information on when we’ll see this update; or which platforms will receive the “black” dark/night mode first.
(Reached for comment, Twitter couldn’t offer more details.) However, Twitter first launched its original dark mode on Android, so that may be a place to watch.

Other apps having dark mode –

A number of apps now support darker themes, including YouTube, Google, Medium, Reddit, Wikipedia, Instapaper, Pocket, IMDb, iBooks, Kindle, Google Maps, Waze, Opera Mini and many more.

It’s even rumored that the upcoming version of the Android OS will have a system-wide dark-mode setting; something dark/night mode users have wanted for years.
