Netflix Blocks 'Breaking Bad' Spoilers From Your Twitter Feed

Published on .

With all the hype over the final series of Breaking Bad, plus those Emmy wins, plenty of people will be wanting to catch up on the series, which is coming to an end very soon. So Netflix has created an app, Spoiler Foiler, that blocks Breaking Bad-related tweets from your Twitter feed. It does require you to read your Twitter timeline on the Spoiler Foiler site, but as long as you do, you can breathe a sigh of relief and know that the ending won't be ruined by other tweets.

It's a cool, but not exactly an original idea and we can't help but wonder if Netflix had taken from inspiration from the folks over at Unspoiler.me, who had developed a Chrome app blocking news of the show from both Facebook and Twitter earlier this year. And with that, you can carry on as usual on your social media, without having to view through a special site.
