How to Turn ON Lights Out Dark Mode in Twitter on iPhone and iPad

I guess you had also been willing to enable full-fledged dark mode called 'Lights Out' in Twitter on your iOS device to use the app comfortably at night. Head over to this upfront guide to get started!

Even though I’ve liked using Twitter’s Night Mode, I had been waiting for a full-fledged dark mode that could take advantage of the OLED screen of my iPhone. After a long wait, the app has finally listened to my wish with a much better implementation.

Apart from providing the blue/grey theme, the news app has now added “Lights Out” with the pitch-black color palette. On top of all, you can choose to turn on the automatic dark mode in the Twitter app for iOS to use the app comfortably at nights. The best part about this feature is that it gets activated itself in the evening and disabled in the morning. Let me help you put this neat feature into action!

Personally, I’ve found this new add-on worth having a go. Twitter had introduced this feature for its Android in 2017. Since then many iOS users had been asking for it. And I’m really glad that Twitter has listened to the feelings of Twitterati just like Facebook Messenger.
