Spoiler Foiler

From Netflix’s Spoiler Foiler site:

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.

A great idea – and clever marketing – from Netflix to help block Breaking Bad spoilers from your Twitter feed. Although this currently only works for a single show, I don’t think it would be difficult for Twitter (or Facebook) to build a more robust, native feature. It would certainly address my previous frustration with social media spoilers.
