How To Change Twitter Color

Are you tired of staring at the blue and white color theme each time you’re on Twitter? Well, you don’t have to put up with this color theme. So, how do you change your Twitter color theme?

Quick Answer

To change the color of Twitter on a PC, click the “More” button and select “Display.” You can choose between 6 colors and also change the background to dark (“Dim” or “Lights out”)

To change the color of Twitter on the mobile app, you need to go to “Settings and privacy” > “Accessibility, display and language” > “Display and sound” > “Dark mode.” There you can change the background of your app by toggling on the “Dark mode” option.

If you’ve been on Twitter for some time, you’ve noticed that it’s easy to navigate the platform. The same goes for changing your Twitter color. Stick on to the article. I’ll talk about how you can change from one color theme to the next. Let’s get into it. 

Changing Twitter Color Theme 

You can change the color theme if you’re tired of the default blue and white theme. Twitter allows you to customize the display color, profile background, and Twitter app icon. You can swap your color theme to yellow, purple, pink, green, or orange.

You can also change your background from the default white to a dim or dark mode. The dim mode switches the white background to a navy Twitter background. On the other hand, the dark or lights-out mode turns the white background into a black screen. 

However, you can only change the color theme via a browser. If you check your android or iPhone Twitter app, you’ll notice there is no Display option on the Menu screen.

So, here is how to change colors on Twitter.

Step #1: Navigate to Twitter and Log In

Go to Twitter’s official website and access your account. On the Home page, click the “More” button (three horizontal dots on the left side of the Home screen). 

Step #2: Select the Display Option 

Select the “Display” option to personalize your Twitter color theme. You’ll see different colors; blue, yellow, purple, orange, pink, and green. If your current Twitter theme is blue and white, there will be a tick within the blue option. Select a color that tickles your fancy. 

Step #3: Tap Done 

You’ll notice that the symbols and wording will change when you press the Done tab. 

You can change the color theme as many times as you wish.

How To Change Twitter’s Background Color

There are two display options you can choose. You can either choose to turn on or off dark mode. If you decide to swap to dark mode, you can select the “Dim” (navy-grayish) or “Lights out” (black) option. 

Here are the steps. 

On Mobile Devices

Step #1: Start the Twitter App

You must launch and access your account to change the color mode. 

Step #2: Click on the Profile Picture 

Once you log into your account, click on your profile picture in the top left corner.

Step #3: Access Display Settings

Select “Setting and Privacy” and then “Accessibility, display, and languages.” From the menu, select “Display and sound.”

Step #4: Set Display Preferences 

Tap on “Dark mode” to personalize your Twitter account display mode. You have two options, “Dim” and “Lights out.” Choose one.

Also, you can turn on the “Use device settings” option to change the color based on your phone’s settings.


Step #1: Navigate to Twitter

Go to the browser and access your Twitter account. 

Step #2: Go to Settings and Privacy 

Tap the “More” button above the Tweet button. Scroll down and click the “Settings and privacy” option.  

Step #3: Settings Page

On the settings page, go to “Accessibility, display, and languages.” The option gives you the ability to manage the display settings. 

Step #4: Change Display Settings 

Select the “Display” option to modify the display settings. You’ll see “Font size,” “Color,” and “Background” options. Go to the “Background” option and choose “Lights out” or “Dim.”

Why To Use Dark Mode?

Both dark mode settings make the screen eye-friendly, especially during nighttime. If you mainly use Twitter at night, choose either option.

Also, the dark background makes your Twitter visually appealing. It looks good if paired with a bright pink, green, yellow, or purple theme color. 

How To Change Twitter App Icon Color

With Twitter Blue, you can customize the Twitter app icon. A subscriber can alter the icon color and add other customization features powered by Twitter Blue. Follow these steps to change the app icon color.

Unfortunately, only Twitter Blue users can change their app icon appearance or color.
