Netflix Unveils ‘Spoiler Foiler’ to Block ‘Breaking Bad’ Spoilers on Twitter

Netflix seems to know the frustration of having to tread lightly on the spoiler danger zone that is Twitter after a new episode of “Breaking Bad,” so they have attempted a solution.

Netflix has launched the “Spoiler Foiler” at spoilerfoiler.com, designed to block out any tweet that could spoil “Breaking Bad,” just in time for its big series finale this Sunday. Thus far, it only works to prevent spoilers for the Emmy-winning AMC drama. Netflix has rights to the “Breaking Bad” library prior to the current final season.

“Bad” fans can log into the website through Twitter and view a relatively normal version of their timeline, the only change being that tweets that could contain spoilers are blacked out with a spoiler warning. They have the option of clicking on the tweet to view it, if they so dare.

The app takes an aggressive approach, blocking any tweet with the words “breaking” or “bad,” even if they may have nothing to do with the show, or are merely innocent comments on the show’s Emmy win. However, for those who have to wait to watch the finale, it may be better to be safe than sorry.
