Twitter to embrace dark mode as default option, announces Musk

In all probability, Twitter is all set to ditch the light mode. While responding to a Tweet on Thursday, Musk said that dark mode is “better in every way” than the classic blue theme and that the platform will “soon only have dark mode.” Currently, Twitter gives an option to its users to switch between light and dark mode.

Switching to dark mode permanently is yet another bold decision by Musk, who only few days back announced a new logo for Twitter as part of the rebranding exercise.
