Game of Thrones characters can be sadistic. From Joffrey Baratheon to Ramsay Bolton, it's a cold world and getting colder. In it, you're either a little sadistic or your dead, and even then your fate isn't guaranteed. Now, with a new app, fans of the show can be just as humorously mean-spirited as Olenna Tyrell. Spoiler will allow you to anonymously send Game of Thrones spoilers to your enemies as soon as the show airs.
It's a cruel game the app creators are playing. It's hard enough already to avoid spoilers between Twitter, article headlines, and people talking about it just about anywhere two people can meet. Should you manage to hide under a rock until you're able to watch the show later on, Spoiler wants to make sure you're not even safe there.
Inspired by a story from early this season where a woman took revenge on her cheating ex by sending Game of Thrones spoilers to him every Monday morning, the creators are remorseless. For just $0.99 users give a man a name (a phone number) and a man gets a terrible text message about the fate of a man's favorite characters. To boot, Spoiler's Twitter account will tweet out the horrified reactions of people who have had their favorite show mysteriously spoiled by an anonymous frenemie.

The app says that it will run for the rest of the season. Though, for those keeping track at home, that's just one more episode. However, at the end of the season, they'll take a poll of users to determine what show they're going to spoil next, according to Business Insider. Walking Dead fans may want to sign up and vote for a show that they aren't watching.
It's a mean game, but it's a good sight kinder than chopping off someone's hand, feeding them to the hounds, tossing someone through the Moon Door, burning their armada, or good old fashioned patricide. So, if you're using this app, you'll have a ways to go before you're as terrible as someone on the show, but you're still terrible.
