Twitter offers a Night Mode that causes the site to display darker colors in both the Twitter Mobile app and on Twitter Desktop, which is when you use  a desktop browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Android to access Twitter. These darker colors produce less light and thus do not bother other people in the room, are easier on the eyes when viewing Twitter in the dark, and arguably look better.

This guide will walk you through enabling Twitter Night Mode on both the mobile app and within a desktop browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Edge. While your on Twitter, do not forget to follow us for other great tips and technology news!
