The series finale for Breaking Bad airs this Sunday, and if you don’t want it to be spoiled for you over Twitter, Netflix may have a solution for you. Their new website, Spoiler Foiler, will allow you to scroll through your Twitter feed completely spoiler-free. Any tweet that may have a mention of Breaking Bad in it is censored, and you have to click on it to reveal the text.
Many people can’t watch Breaking Bad the moment it airs. It airs on the east coast of the US long before it reaches the west coast, and it reaches the UK long after it reaches the US. While many people are just too busy to watch it when it airs, time zones are also a significant causes of spoilers, and Netflix’s new service aims to end that.
This service makes sense coming from Netflix given that they found that their users tend to “binge watch” shows rather than watching shows live. That’s why they launched House of Cards all at once, after all. Netflix is able to see that the way we watch TV is changing.
Spoiler Foiler works by getting you log in to your Twitter account and get your tweets filtered through Spoiler Foiler. You’re currently only able to do this through the website — there is no Android or iOS app — and while there is no mobile version of the website, the desktop version seems to work passably on mobile devices.
Currently, the service only censors Breaking Bad spoilers, but time will tell if the service extends to other popular TV shows after Breaking Bad ends.
What do you think of Spoiler Foiler? Will you be using it this Sunday? Let us know in the comments.
