Following a successful roll out of Night Mode for the mobile version of Twitter app, the microblogging company is currently testing the desktop version of the same feature, 9to5google reports.

Night Mode as you already know, is a feature that makes it easier to read tweets in the dark without leaving a strain on your eyes. The feature gets rid of any traces of white from the app, replacing it with a dark gray. The result of the change is not only good for the health of your eyes, but makes the app lovely to see.

The Night Mode feature is placed at the bottom of the pop-up list when you click your profile photo. It is a feature that is gradually still being rolled out by Twitter, and could take some time before it could become widely available to everyone. On the other hand, Twitter could just be testing it out with a handful of users.

The Android version of the Night Mode feature can be accessed in the navigation menu or profile icon. From there, you will find the Night Mode feature. When enabled, this feature won’t give you an actual black color. Although its darker color is just subtle, it is still an interesting feature for Twitter users who want a less bright interface when they use their device in a low light setting.

Shortly after launching the Android version of the feature, the microblogging website added the iOS version.

The night or dark mode feature ensures that the light being transmitted from the app on your phone is not harsh on your eyes. By using a color that is darker than usual, you won’t have any problem using your phone in the night when tweeting. It is a smart move, despite the fact that a lot of people don’t particularly rate the Twitter app.

Still on new features, Twitter is reportedly testing a paid subscription service that will cost $99 per month. The plan could appeal to brands and some big-time Twitter users who might view it as an opportunity to reach out to not just many people, but the right people on the platform. The subscription service was first spotted by a Twitter user Matt Navarra when he received an email from the microblogging website. Navarra received the email as a past Twitter Ads user.

The subscription service, according to report, “automatically amplifies your tweets and profile” a full 30-day period. You will be able to see stats that include engagement, campaigns, followers, and additional reach.

Subscription, according to Twitter, cane be cancelled at any time; but subscribers to the services won’t be charged for using the service within the 30-day test period. Want to test the new feature? Well, that depends on how lucky you are because you will need an invite to be able to access it since it is still in beta stage.
