Twitter's dark mode consists of two variations, "dim" and "lights out". The former is already available across the Web, iOS and Android, while the latter has been available on the Web and iOS, and rolled out on Android this week.

"Lights Out" mode could save battery life on those devices with OLED screens, improves readability at night, and also increased accessibility for individuals with specific types of visual impairment.

It would also render in eleven languages including Bengali, English, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Odia, Tamil and Telugu allowing a diverse set of people to celebrate Diwali and join the public conversation.
