Twitter adds a lights out dark mode for OLED screens
See the original posting on The Verge
Twitter, showing that it does occasionally listen to user requests, has delivered on CEO Jack Dorseys promise of a true, battery-saving dark mode. The company has just tweeted the announcement that its dark mode with a proper black background, which its dubbing lights out, is rolling out today, presumably to both its Android and iOS apps.
With every modern flagship phone, iPhones included, now having an OLED screen, the use of a black background in the most popularly used apps can really be a help with extending battery life. The OLED panel only lights up the pixels that arent black, so a lot of energy can be saved if youre just perusing the endless scroll of pained screams into the digital ether in the true dark.
It was dark….
