This right here is why I can’t take dark mode seriously. Any supposed benefits fall flat on their face when the mode creates something close to unreadable:

Screenshot from a linked Mastodon preview, with black text on a dark grey background. The same image in light mode has the text on white, this easier to read.

It should be noted this isn’t a flaw in the OpenGraph image itself, as light mode shows black text on white background. Every time I try dark mode, I discover a visual failure and quickly switch it off again. All this is to say nothing of too many apps that default to pure white on black—horrible for readability.
