Teenager Develops App That Blocks TV Spoilers on Twitter


The best part of last night's episode of Downton Thrones was when Dexter fused with the TARDIS. RT if you agree! 

Oh, you haven't seen it yet? Sorry for the spoilers. But now there's an app for that:

Lamere is a 17-year-old high schooler who has developed a browser plug-in that will block tweets with TV spoilers.

Twivo, a plug-in for Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers that will be available to everyone in a few weeks, blocks tweets if it detects keywords that may reveal important details about a show users may want to watch.

After installing Twivo, users activate the plugin whenever one of their shows is going to come on. They also designate keywords, or tags, to tell Twivo which tweets to block. For example, a user could decide to block tweets that include a show's name, characters' names or even the names of the actors.
