Discord is a new- age social media platform where you can find people with same interest as you. You are free here to talk about your favourite anime or favourite book or even a show. But sometimes it can be annoying for someone to receive messages having spoilers about the show one is watching or the book one is reading. It would be truly a frustrating situation. The person cannot definitely stop everyone from telling them the spoilers, right? Thus, You can always look out for your fellow users, keeping in mind their comfort as well.
Luckily, discord foreseen this issue and introduced “spoiler tags”. These tags can be applied to avoid any spoiler message from you reaching unwanted person and stops you from ruining your friend’s marvellous experience of watching shows and reading books.
Spoiler tags can be easily fixed to hide messages initially. Spoiler tags can be used in the discord messages of your browser, the discord app installed in your android, windows, mac, iPhone or iPad. The spoiler tags can be used on both text and images.
