For all of you, myself included, who often have to avoid Twitter on nights when your favorite TV shows are airing and you can’t watch them live as they air for fear of having them spoiled by the people you follow, well, a 17 year-old girl may have just changed your life.
Yes, last month Jennie Lamere invented Twivo, a program that allows Twitter users to censor tweets containing mentions of TV show names and/or the names of characters from those shows. Lamere presented Twivo at a national coding competition — the TVnext Hack event in Boston that was held on April 27 — and she beat out roughly 80 other competitors, all of whom were male, to win the grand prize. You go girl! Good work!
