When you count down the hours until a new episode of your favorite TV show airs, the last thing you want to encounter is a spoiler on social networking sites. Is there anything worse? Didn't think so.
Setting out to fix that very issue, 17-year-old Jen Lamere recently took home the top prize at the TVnext hack event in Boston (where she was the only female participating) for her Twivo app for Google Chrome. The concept is exactly how it sounds: Tivo for tweets.
Twivo puts a block on tweets with keywords relevant to any show during certain periods of time. This way, you never have to be afraid to check out Twitter while away from the TV.
