Do you dislike the appearance of the Twitter app, especially when you are reading it at night or in the dark? The bright white background can be a little irritating in low-light environments if you have sensitive eyes, so you might be looking for a way to tone that down.
Fortunately the Twitter app on your iPhone includes something called Night mode that will change the background to a dark blue color. In fact, if you’ve ever seen someone’s Twitter screen on TV and it looked different than yours, it’s likely that they were using night mode. Our tutorial below will show you how to use this on your iPhone’s Twitter app, too.
