Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today – February 2
Here’s Why #DeleteSpotify is Trending
The internet is calling for the cancellation of Spotify subscriptions following controversial podcaster, Joe Rogan, COVID misinformation on the platform, severally.
In response to the backlash, Rogan said, “I’m not trying to promote misinformation, I’m not trying to be controversial. I’ve never tried to do anything with this podcast other than just talk to people and have interesting conversations.
Spotify CEO Daniel Ek hanged in the balance of the issue saying, “It is important to me we don’t take on the position of being content censor while also making sure that there are rules in place and consequences for those who violate them.”
Several artists have since removed their catalogue from the platform unless action is taken.
The Joe Rogan Experience, which is exclusively hosted on the platform for a $100 million deal, was the most listened to podcast in 2021.

KOT Trolls Comedian Flaqo
On Tuesday (Feb. 1), a section of Kenyans on Twitter went on trolling spree against Flaqo for “trying to hard” with his comical skits. This comes after the popular comedian shared his latest clip that went viral.
Fans were, however, quick to point out that Twitterati are not the target audience for Flaqo’s content.

There is this hate Kenyans always channel towards people who’re just trying to make it in this life that is so unnecessary. People are just trying to make it in this tough life but some of you just can’t let them. I remember you all trolling Azziad, Elsa, Mulamwah and now flaqo.
