@HuffPoSpoilers

In 2012, frustrated with the clickbait clogging my Twitter feed—most glaringly from @HuffingtonPost—I created @HuffPoSpoilers. In April 2013 the account caught on, and in the years since has lead to press coverage, imitators, and I would like to think, a wider push back against the scourge of clickbait. The feed has evolved to included occasional broader media criticism as well.
