Netflix Launches Breaking Bad ‘Spoiler Foiler’

By: Chris Crum - September 24, 2013

While die hard fans won’t have to worry about it for too much longer, Netflix has created a “Spoiler Foiler” designed to keep Breaking Bad spoilers out of fans’ Twitter feeds. It’s a Twitter app designed to keep you from seeing Breaking Bad-related tweets you don’t want to see.

“Behind on Breaking Bad? Now you can check your feed without fear,” the app site explains. “Any tweets with danger words get blacked out..When you’ve caught up, it’s safe to go back to normal Twitter. Until Heisenberg comes knocking again on Monday.”


It appears to block out text from any tweet even containing the word “bad”.

While there is only one episode left to air, a lot of people will still be making their way through the series for the first time using Netflix (or other means). Of course viewers in the UK relying on Netflix to get the episodes the day after they air here in the U.S. have to worry about us here int he states ruining it for them.
