Dark mode is literally on every other App these days as people find it more pleasing to the eyes and apparently it also save battery for many. For Twitter, the dark mode was already available on iOS devices and now the company has rolled out an even more darker mode that’s called “Lights Out”. The reason for this being that users were not happy with the earlier dark mode which was more of a blue shade than black.
The App earlier had a single dark mode which had a blue/grey tone and wasn’t anywhere near the actual black tone. The company had made a few adjustments to this earlier in January but it still was not favourable to a number of users. After listening to the user complaints, Twitter has finally introduced two additional dark modes, the lights out and the automatic dark mode.

In a press release, Twitter explained the three dark modes:
Dim: Dim is the current Dark Mode theme that we introduced in 2016 – a blue/grey color that still gives people a more comfortable way to enjoy Twitter for any environment you’re in and helps reduce eye strain in low lit environments.
Lights Out: Our new theme for Dark Mode, which is a pure black color palette that emits no light since the pixels are turned off. This is a great option for those who want an even darker theme for low lit environments that reduces eye strain, and can potentially help with saving battery.
Automatic Dark Mode: Now, Twitter for iOS devices can enable automatic dark mode to switch from light to the dark mode theme of their choice according to their timezone. This feature takes the burden off of people to make the adjustments. If you’re using Twitter all day long, it’s better on the eyes to have a tool that adjusts for the varying environments, contexts, and atmospheres you’ll experience throughout the day.
