Since I live on the West Coast, I had to make a point to avoid most of the Internet — Twitter included — during the finale of Lost, lest it be ruined by a tweet, post, or comment. After I watched the show, I checked Twitter and, to my surprise, very few of my East Coast friends posted anything about the show, much less any spoiler. The New York Times Bits blog posted a graph tracking Lost-related Twitter traffic throughout the day on Sunday, which, according to social media tracking site Trendrr peaked during commercial breaks.

I try to step away from my phone and computer during TV shows — important ones, at least — do you?
