Charlie Charlie Challenge: Your terrifying experiences of summoning a MEXICAN DEMON in bizarre viral ritual.

Youngsters across the world have uploaded numerous clips of the apparently simple Ouija board-inspired ritual to Twitter and Instagram in recent days, reports Fox5. A terrifying new Twitter craze claims a simple ritual can be used to summon the spirit of a MEXICAN DEMON called Charlie – and our readers have shared some of their most horrifying experiences of the challenge.

The children can ask it any question they want — as long as it can be answered with a “yes” or “no.” They must also chant, “Charlie, Charlie, can we stop?” before ending the game. The game, which involves placing two pencils on a piece of paper in the shape of a cross, requires uses to write the words “yes” and “no” inside the four squares formed by the pencils.

If the pencil moves and points to “yes”, Charlie is in the house and you can draw upon his demonic life experience and ask him for guidance in the form of yes/no questions. Other spectre-seekers have taken a more light-hearted approach, using the ritual to ask which member of One Direction will be her husband or when the new Justin Bieber album will drop. Hannah Mckinley got in touch to say that nothing happened at first when she tried out the challenge – but then, five minutes later, she heard “a scream from a distance”. You can do that by waiting until one of their messages appear in the news feed, clicking the little arrow in the top right and choosing to unfollow the person.

But then when I wasn’t with my friends anymore all the lights and everything switched off. “I got even more freaked out because power cuts rarely ever happen in my area and when I looked outside the window the lights on the rest of the houses on my street were all on. The best thing is to download an extension like Social Fixer — available for the main browsers — which gives you the option to mute whatever you like from your Facebook news feed, among other things. You’ll still any other updates, even from the friends that post about the challenge — you’ll just get to banish the Charlie demon from your news feed. Just head to the settings page and choose “Mute” — on that menu, add “Charlie Charlie Challenge”, or just “Charlie”, and you’ll never see a post with those words again. You’ll have to download a browser extension like Open Tweet Filter, which adds a mute function to Twitter that works in the same way as the Tweetdeck one.

While some third-party phone apps do have options to use blocklists (like Tweetbot’s for mobile), the official Twitter one has no such option, meaning that it’s impossible to mute specific words. These suffer from the same problem as Facebook — since most people visit them on their mobiles, using apps, it’s very difficult to block specific things.
