Twitter announced on Friday that it will be making dark mode the default setting for its platform. The company said that the decision was made after user feedback showed that dark mode is preferred by a majority of users.
"We've heard from many of you that you prefer dark mode, so we're making it the default setting," Twitter said in a tweet. "We'll still offer light mode for those who prefer it, but dark mode will now be the way most people experience Twitter."
Dark mode is a feature that inverts the colors of a user interface, making the background black and the text white. It is often preferred by users who find bright screens to be harsh on their eyes, especially at night.
Twitter's decision to make dark mode the default setting is a sign of the growing popularity of the feature. In recent years, many other popular apps have also added dark mode options, including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
The change is expected to go into effect in the coming weeks. Users who prefer light mode can still choose to use it by going to their settings.
