Supermute looks like an effective way to avoid avoid spoilers. I'm going to use it to mute anyone who uses the words "cuck," "woo," "dank," "kek," or "lit."
Supermute is a blunt tool. You can define any phrase you'd like to mute for up to 7 days. During that time period, if anyone in your timeline (including people RTed into your timeline) says that phrase, that account gets muted until the time period is over. Like, their whole account. Capitalization doesn't matter. It'll even pick up partial phrases, so if you mute "horse" you'll also mute people who say "seahorse", or post a link to "http://example.com/horses", and so on. This is useful for muting big conferences/events, avoiding TV spoilers, or just taking a break from certain politicians or topics for an evening.
This uses Twitter's mute function. We keep track here of who you've muted via this tool, so you can check in and see how it's going if you want. We'll never let anyone else know you muted them, promise. We'll also never tweet on your behalf. All we do is mute and unmute. You can even cancel a supermute partway through.

Just spoke to […]
Donald Trump is threatening a Twitter employee, on Twitter, just after Jack Dorsey tweeted to leave his employees out of this. The drama continues.
After Trump threw a tantrum over Twitter doing the bare-minimum to fact-check his deliberately misleading tweets, Trump announced plans to sign an Executive Order that forces social media to “protect” “free speech.” Because government-approved top-down authoritarian control of private companies is apparently now a central tenet of the Republican Party.

The world is holding its collective breath. As states begin cautiously reopening, no one is sure exactly what to expect. But one thing is clear: most Americans are worried about their bank accounts. By the end of March, the average American household was spending 40 percent less on their credit cards than they were one […]
Over 25 years, eBay has carved out its space as the commerce hub of choice online. With 182 million users worldwide, that works out to about 35 percent of all US mobile users who shop those eBay storefronts. But did you know there are usually around 1.3 billion — with a B — active for-sale […]
Software apps are a dime a dozen. Well, if you’re going by their actual monetary cost, maybe not really. But considering how useless some poorly conceived, poorly executed apps are at doing the job you actually downloaded them to accomplish, it isn’t a stretch to think that many apps aren’t even worth a free download.
