The company made the announcement this week, revealing that users can now activate the feature when they’re logged onto the social media platform from a computer.

Initially, it was only available for Android and iOS apps. 

In Night Mode, Twitter changes from its usual white and light blue background to a navy blue one. To turn it on, just click on your avatar at the top right corner of the screen, and click “Night Mode,” which has moon icon beside it, from the drop down list. 

When you’re ready switch back day, simply follow the same steps to deselect. 

The goal is to reduce the eye strain you may experience from the bright and colorful screen. With the fresh feature, you can rest your lids a little better.

It may not be available to everyone just yet, but all tweeps should have access to it by the end of the week.
