The 8th Season of Game of Thrones is HerePosted on 8th March 2019
Game of Thrones season 8 is almost here! Are you excited about it? Well, you should be, because it’s the season when it all comes together, and we will witness a battle of an epic scale. If you have the means to watch it, of course.
Let’s have a quick recap of what has happened last year. As the long-awaited seventh season premiered, 16 million people turned to their notebooks, PCs, and TVs to watch it! Of course, not everything was smooth, inducing Twitter rage in fans.
For example, residents in Australia, the US, and parts of Latin America were unable to watch the stream due to the technical glitches experienced by Foxtel, one of the broadcasting companies. The company blamed it on the unprecedented demand, enraging fans even more.
It’s like hundreds of posts, articles and twits didn’t clue them in the fact that people were really waiting for the show. Anyway, we hope this year’s premiere goes without such nuances, though pessimists among us shout that it won’t.
Alert: Spoilers Incoming!
As the Day approaches, we will surely see an influx of news, theories, and twits about Game of Thrones. If you don’t want to spoil yourself the fun accidentally by, well, a spoiler (we wonder where this clever name came from?), you can filter your feed, so you don’t stumble accidentally into anything revealing.
Statistically, Twitter is the most likely place to hit you with them spoilers. So, if you want to shield yourself from the possible threats, you need to block certain keywords that can ruin the fun.
Here’s how to do it: go to Settings > Privacy > Muted words. Here you can ether the words you want to mute, so you would no longer see tweets tagged by those words. You can also specify the timeframe.
Look out for these keywords while setting your Great Filter to shield you from any incoming spoilers:
If you want to filter everything, the Internet residents took care of that, as well. Download GameofSpoils, a Google Chrome plugin to cut off everything, including your Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and even Google News feeds, so you don’t have to worry about running into an occasional spoiler on your friend’s page or among the news articles.
They also have a rather hilarious way of blocking content off, so try it anyway just for the fun of it.
