Once updated, you’ll find the toggle option for a dark mode under your profile submenu. You’ll also notice that the Retweet and Like counts will update in real time, perfect for keeping track of viral moments. And finally, there is an updated Tweet compose box (accessible by pressing N) which now makes it possible to more easily move between your Tweets and your timeline.
Again, since this is a PWA, there’s no need to head to the Microsoft Store to get this update. Everything is automatic, and if you’re not seeing these new features at first, you might want to wait a few seconds or minutes and re-launch the app. Are you liking this update?
