Spoilerfoiler: Netflix's Solution to Those Pesky Breaking Bad Spoiler Tweets
Now you can stop resenting your friends for being technologically inconsiderate and posting spoiler-laden tweets about Breaking Bad. (Seriously, you know you were about to go all Heisenberg on them if they tweeted another spoiler.)
According to Gigaom, Spoilerfoiler.com allows you to access your feed on Twitter through a somewhat filtered view. Any tweet on your feed containing “potential spoilers” is blacked out so you can scroll through your feed worry-free until after you’ve seen the episode(s) you’ve missed of the AMC drama.
It seems that this redacted, Breaking Bad-free version of your Twitter feed can only be accessed through the Spoilerfoiler.com website and so it doesn’t affect your feed on Twitter’s actual site. Once you log into the site with your Twitter account, you can begin safely viewing your feed immediately.
As one could expect, Spoilerfoiler isn’t perfect. Sometimes tweets are blacked out even though it doesn’t contain any plot-specific spoilers, but only because the tweets could somehow be related to Breaking Bad. Tweets about other television shows have been reported as being blacked out as well.
Also, Spoilerfoiler.com was designed to focus in on Breaking Bad tweets. So viewers of other popular shows, beware: You’re still not safe from spoiler trolls.
