Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today – August 3
Pizza and Wine Festival Pushed Back
Pizza and Wine Festival has been pushed back by a month following new government regulations on COVID-19.
“Following the latest announcement by the Ministry of Health Cabinet Secretary, Mutahi Kagwe on 30th July 2021, suspending all public gatherings and in person meetings of whatever nature, we, Pizza and Wine Group, have taken the difficult decision to push forward the Pizza and Wine Festival – Kitenge Edition initially scheduled for 7th August 2021 to October 2021. Final dates to follow after,” confirmed the event organizers via Instagram on Monday.
The much anticipated music event will still be headlined by Nigerian star Omah Lay.

Instagram Suffers Widespread Outage
Instagram was down for the better part of Monday evening. According to independent outage monitor, DownDetector.com, users reported an error which read, “we limit how often you can do certain things,” as some claimed to have had issues with Instagram stories.
Instagram acknowledged the issue in a statement on Twitter about the outage, but did not reveal the finer details on what happened. “Is #instagramdown for you? We’re working on it! We know that some people are currently having issues, and we’re fixing it ASAP,” wrote their PR reps via @InstagramComms.
The outage issue has since been resolved.
And we’re back! If you were having a hard time earlier, your account should be working normally now.
