Users of Elon Musk’s popular social media platform X (Twitter) had conflicting responses to the new feature that Musk has previewed.
Elon Musk, a billionaire who actively communicates with his community, quickly replied to @cb_doge, a user who posted a picture showing the difference between the X version with the present Blue checkmark for Twitter Blue users and the Black checkmark.
Dark Mode Only
Elon Musk has said that the platform would soon just feature a dark mode because “It is better in every way.” In most cases, a dark mode is available as a preference for the user to choose in the settings menu of the program or site. It’s possible that Elon Musk’s plan to make the app’s dark mode the default setting would cause friction among the service’s most active users.
Users like American blockchain payments startup CTO David Schwartz, who tweeted earlier asking whether he was the only one who thought making the famous town square darker was a bad idea. While Elon Musk may be the app’s owner, he has a reputation for being democratic when making choices that would have a significant impact on the app’s user base as a whole.
