Along with propagating inane hashtags like #NameYourDickAfterAMovie*, Twitter is also horribly ruthless when it comes to spoiling movies and TV shows. To prevent an unwelcome spoiler, you have to basically abstain from Twitter when a show like Breaking Bad comes on or when a big movie like The Dark Knight Rises comes out. But that's not the only way! Here's how to make your Twitter spoiler-free.
BuzzFeed FWD came up with a good guide on how to filter out specific words and phrases from your timeline and here's the breakdown for each platform.
Twitter for Web
- Download a Chrome plug-in called Open Tweet Filter from the Chrome Web Store
- Click 'Filter' from the top, black menu bar on Twitter.com
- Add words, phrases and users you don't want to see anymore (ie batman, breaking bad, etc.)
And there you have it, filtering tweets will give you a spoiler-free (or as close as you could get) Twitter experience. [BuzzFeed FWD]
