The new Twitter app ‘Spoiler Foiler’ blacks out words that could reveal plot developments about the TV show.
Netflix has debuted a new Twitter app called ‘Spoiler Foiler,’ which prevents spoilers about Breaking Bad from hitting fans’ news feeds. It helps those who are behind on TV episodes check their feed without worrying about reading what happens next.
Any tweets that feature danger words about the plot get blacked out so they can’t be read. When fans have caught up with the latest episode, it’s safe for them to go back to normal Twitter.
The app can be activated by simply logging in with Twitter from the Spoiler Foiler site and clicking the link to authorize it. Netflix’s app is great for Breaking Bad fans, who can read through their spoiler-free news feed, and would be even better if it extended to other popular TV shows.
