Don’t you just hate it when you’re forced to wait a day to watch your favorite show only to have someone ruin it with a spoiler on Twitter. Well, those days may now be over.
Twitter just launched a new mute feature, which allows users to block certain words, phrases and hashtags from their notifications tab, push notifications, SMS, email notifications, Home timeline, and from replies to Tweets. What’s more, it also allows users to set a specific time frame that will note how long they want such words and phrases purged.
There is one thing to watch out for. While the muting function will block those words from your timeline, should you do any searches you’ll still see those tweets.
And of course, you can still mute certain accounts, should they say be live-tweeting a show, so if you missed "Scandal" on Thursday night you won't have to stay off Twitter until you watch it.
