How (not) activate the dark mode on Twitter

A fake message is circulating on the social network Twitter suggesting that just changing your birthday date to 2007 enables the Dark Mode of the application. Although the matter is not very credible, there are many users who have bitten to the point of blocking the account.

We have created a Twitter account in order to prove it and the strange thing is that Twitter does not request that you enter the date of your birthday as a first step, despite warning you that it has a minimum age limit established in the 13 years.

To add your birthday, you must go to Settings and privacy> My data and enter your password and then scroll down and click on Add date of birth.

In this way, the only thing you will have achieved by proceeding with the change of date is to block your account. Android devices, for the moment, do not have the Dark Mode that is available for iOS, so do not be fooled.

How to unlock your Twitter account

In order to unlock your account, debers click here and demonstrate with a photographic evidence the actual date of your birthday. The DNI (national identity document), passport or driver's license will serve as proof.

How to enable Twitter dark mode

  • Launch the Twitter application
  • Click on the icon of your profile located in the upper left
  • Select Settings and privacy
  • Enter General and brand Screen and sound
  • Press the Night mode option
  • Choose Off, Auto power on at sunset

Dark modes on your iOS device

If you have an iPhone or iPad you will have been able to verify that Twitter introduced the Dark Mode with the update of the iOS application, as well as the night mode, emulating the visualization offered by macOS Mojave.

Within the application, click on the Settings and privacy option. Once inside, scroll down to the General section and click on Screen and sound.

See how it is possible to activate the Twitter Dark Mode tab, so that immediately, the application's interface will change to dark tones and the text will be shown in white.

Within the Dark Mode of iOS it is possible to choose between light night and dark night so that black is more or less intense. You can also let the application activate Dark Mode automatically so that it is activated at dusk and deactivated in the morning.
