@Kaan Eryilmaz FWIW, I do believe this to be a fun idea. I very much like it. But billions of dollars does not mean you do everything Tweetbot does. How do you know they didn't test a dark version? What if it didn't perform well in a test? Ship it anyway? How important is it that Instagram take a firm stance on one UI verses offering a 2nd option from a brand perspective? From a business perspective?
As simple and easy things like this may appear to be, there are sometimes risks associated that can have less to do with aesthetics. Or maybe they just shipped the MVP and something like this is on the roadmap. Or maybe they put a stake in the ground and said 'this is who we are, like it or leave it'. Which is fair because they have billions of users.
