Twitter participated in the Night Mode party in 2016 with the option to darken the app's dazzling white background to a more soothing blue tone. It certainly worked that way, but with the recently renewed fad of the OS-wide dark modes, the implementation of Twitter has faded by comparison. This will change as soon as the company starts to test the lights-out mode for their Android app.
An updated version 8.19.0 was recently introduced for Alpha Tester by Twitter for Android and brings a new display setting. Below the display head is a third element that lets you choose the appearance of the dark mode between two options – light and dark. Dim is basically the existing dark mode of Twitter in the Stable app, where the background turns dark blue. Turning off the lights, on the other hand, switches the user interface to true black, which helps reduce the power consumption of OLED display phones.

Although the lighting was switched off in March, the function could not see the light of day until this week (pun intended). Even now, the dark mode option is limited to the Twitter app for Twitter for Android, which is only available to a small group of invitees. It still has to slide down to the beta version, before finally coming to the stable version.
The APK file for Twitter version 8.19.0-alpha.03 is not yet available on APK Mirror, but we will update you when it goes live. You can also become an alpha tester by joining the Twitter for Android Experiment Group ( edit: fixed link ) and download this version directly from the Play Store.
Based on comments and reports, this change also appears to be server-side. It's probably introduced on the Alpha version, but it also requires a server switch to appear. Some users have managed to trigger it by emptying the app's cache, but their mileage may vary.
Twitter announced that the new "light off, dark" mode is now available to everyone. We've verified that it will be shown for both the beta version and the stable version of the app.
