When you’re watching the latest movie or television show, it can be difficult to avoid spoiling a plot twist if you tweet about it before the credits roll. To ensure that you don’t accidentally ruin your friends’ enjoyment of whatever program they are watching or book they are reading, add spoiler tags in Twitter to your tweets using the steps below. Keep in mind that using spoiler tags is optional and not everyone on Twitter will be bothered if you choose to do so.
What is a Spoiler
A spoiler is a piece of information about the end of a movie, book or TV show that someone might not want to know. In most cases, the word spoiler is used when talking about TV shows, movies, and books. There are two types of spoilers: plot spoilers and twist spoilers. Plot spoilers are pieces of information that will reveal an ending or major plot points. Twist spoilers refer to revealing something surprising about the story, such as a character’s true identity or what happens after the main event (such as death). These types of spoilers can ruin an experience for someone if they are spoiled too soon.

How to Add Spoiler Tags in Twitter?
Importance of Spoiler tags
Here is a step-by-step process on how to add spoiler tags on Twitter. First, go to the Twitter application and click on Settings from the drop-down menu. Scroll down until you see Tweet privacy. Choose Protect my Tweets. This will lock your tweets from public viewing for up to 10 days after posting them. If there are any tweets that you want to make public sooner, then choose Unprotect My Tweets from the drop-down menu and click Save Changes. Now when you tweet, it will have the words Spoiler alert! before what you write.
