Feeling tired of all the tweets about the latest Game of Thrones episode you haven’t watched or the endless Trump versus Clinton status clashes? Ian Gleason has spent years working in the media as an Executive News Director at the nationally syndicated Lex & Terry Morning Radio Network and a popular podcaster and was feeling really frustrated with all the spoilers out there messing up his life. He decided to team up with SyncTech Creative and that’s how Spoiler Block Pro was born – a new kind of an app to block any type of content you don’t want to see in your Twitter feed.

How Spoiler Block Works

Choose the keywords you’d like to filter e.g. Kardashians, Patriot game etc. and the app will let you stay wonderfully clueless about the latest news on the matter. Using the smart algorithms it will keep your feed free from tweets, re-tweets and even favorite notifications. You can choose to unblock the keywords any time you like with one click.

Key Features

Spoiler Block Pro is available both for Android and iOS for $1.99, yet also offers a free version, which runs ads.  Here’s what you can expect from this app:

Block Any Type of Content You’d Like

Unlike similar blocking apps, mainly offering a pre-selected set of spoiler alerts, with Spoiler Block you can create custom filters (as many as you need) to keep your feed 100 percent spoiler free.

Manage Spoiler Blocks Easily

You can remove the block with one click once you’ve caught up on the latest episode or feel ready to take part in the conversation again. The app stores all your current and past blocks neatly organized and within quick access, so that you can reuse them any time.

Tackles Different Content Formats

Direct messages, tweets, retweets, replies and favorite updates – the app truly filters it all, so that you can be 100% sure nothing slips through. This feature is also useful, when you’d prefer not to receive certain type of content to your DM inbox e.g. constant follow requests or spam ads.

Though Spoiler Block is available for Twitter only right now, the creators promise to launch similar apps for Facebook and other social media networks in the future. Currently, the company works on creating additional features based on user-feedback.
