It happens all the time. For whatever reason, you're unable to watch your favorite show on the day that it airs. You log into your Twitter that night, forgetting that your feed is filled with fans of the very show you're unable to watch. Then one of the people you follow tweets a spoiler that ruins the plot of the episode - not to mention your night.
Has this ever happened to you? If so, there's good news on the horizon. Now, thanks to Netflix, Twitter spoilers might very well be a thing of the past.
That's right, Netflix has unveiled the ‘Spoiler Foiler,’ a web portal designed to block all spoilers on Twitter related to the upcoming Breaking Bad series finale. Just go to SpoilerFoiler.com and log into Twitter directly from the site. Here's a brief description of how it works:
“Behind on 'Breaking Bad'? Now you can check your feed without fear. Any tweets with danger words get blacked out, as below. When you’ve caught up, it's safe to go back to normal Twitter. Until Heisenberg comes knocking again on Monday.”
With its penultimate episode airing last week, Breaking Bad received its highest ratings ever and had over 6.6 million viewers during a very crowded Sunday night filled with Football and the Dexter series finale.
Breaking Bad is undoubtedly one of the most successful series that Netflix has to offer. Preventing spoilers on one of the world’s most popular social media application would only benefit Netflix who has made the series available via its popular streaming service.
Netflix has created an excellent feature with SpoilerFoiler.com, especially for someone like myself who has to go on an Internet blackout every time he's unable to be in front of the TV at the right time. Hopefully, this feature will be available for other series in the near future so we may never be spoiled on Twitter again.
What do you think of the Spoiler Foiler, Screen Rant readers? Will you use it? Let us know in the comments.
The Emmy Award-winning Breaking Bad ends Sunday, September 29th @9pm on AMC.
