Even if they are sober thoughts, drunken words aren't responsible social media posts

Perhaps you’ve made the mistake, after a couple drinks, of sending an alcohol-influenced messaged to that special someone. But what happens when you drunkenly send your message, via social media, to your entire community of special someones? Hoping to prevent such a faux pas, Lockout: Drunk Message Blocker is a social media blocking application that allows you to limit any late-night posting.

Before a night out, users open the Lockout app and choose from 6 social media applications to disable, including Facebook, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. Users then schedule a deactivation period, lasting from 1-10 hours. Once enacted, Lockout blocks the applications entirely; not even restarting the phone, deleting Lockout, or reinstalling the blocked applications lift the ban—foiling efforts of inebriated users looking for their social media fix.
