Twitter’s Rebranding and the Introduction of Dark Mode by Elon Musk
Twitter to Offer Dark Mode By Default
Twitter, the renowned microblogging app that has been a part of our lives for the past 17 years, recently underwent a major transformation under the leadership of Elon Musk. The platform, now known as “X,” has adopted a new identity and ideology to align with Musk’s vision of consolidating his numerous ventures under one umbrella. Adding to the flurry of visual and functional changes, it seems that Twitter will soon be embracing dark mode as its default theme. Let’s delve deeper into the details.
Elon Musk, in a recent tweet, declared that X, formerly known as Twitter, will now exclusively offer dark mode, stating that it is superior in every aspect. Up until now, Twitter had only provided light mode as the default option on Android, iOS, and the web. However, many users expressed their disapproval of this decision. For instance, a Twitter user named DogeDesigner pointed out that if Musk intends to fully embrace the dark color scheme, changing the “Blue Tick” to a “Black Tick” may not be visually appealing. On the other hand, some fans have appreciated this move.
In response to the overwhelming requests from users worldwide, Elon Musk later tweeted that the microblogging platform will retain light mode as an option.
However, dark mode will still be the default setting, and users will have the option to manually switch to light mode. Additionally, the previously available dim mode will be completely removed.
Furthermore, Twitter has introduced a new logo, which is currently live on its web version but has yet to make its way to the mobile apps. Given the current state of Twitter’s continuous changes, it is possible that even this decision may be altered in the future, as Elon Musk is known for his fluctuating choices. Only time will tell how well the dark-only mode will be received by the audience. Speaking of that, which side are you on? Team light mode or dark mode? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
