How to Avoid True Detective Spoilers on Twitter

Scared to look at Twitter because you missed True Detective last night? No problem. If you use TweetDeck, you can mute the show to live a blissful, spoiler-free day.

It's simple!. On the far left-hand side of your TweetDeck client, click the Settings icon. Click that, then select the Settings tab, then select Mute. Under the Text content option, type in True Detective. Then you should be able to avoid tweets with spoilers or recaps you might be tempted to read.

If you're extra paranoid, you can type in words like "rust" and "marty" and "truedetective" and "yellow king," or however specific you want to get with it. Once you're all caught up, it's as simple as going back to the Mute section of settings and hitting remove on the words you've blocked.

Obviously, this tactic works for any spoiler, whether it's sports scores, Oscar winners, or another show you follow. And it works for TweetBot as well, if that's your poison. Otherwise, if you're super paranoid, avoid opening your Twitter app or the main Twitter site at all costs today. Otherwise, you should be good to go with these digital blinders in place.
