Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today – May 10
IG Launches Captions Sticker to Stories
Instagram has launched a new captions sticker feature in Stories, with a future roll out in Reels. “Sound off ?…with sound off. Now you can add a captions sticker in Stories (coming soon to Reels) that automatically turns what you say into text,” tweeted Instagram last week. “With captions, people can now express themselves in a more effortless yet still meaningful way, and their audience can watch and still engage.”
The new feature not only promotes accessibility for deaf users on the App but also those who prefer to watch videos silenced. Per Social Media Today, “when you add the new Captions sticker to your captured video, it will auto-generate text captions based on the audio input. The auto-captions won’t be 100% accurate all of the time, but you’ll also be able to edit the text, as well as the text color, position and font, to best suit your presentation.”
The microblogging platform further announced they were “starting in a handful of countries [US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore and Ireland] and hope to expand soon”.

The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 Movie Trailer Released
Carl Black (Mike Epps) is about to face off with the neighbor from hell (Katt Williams) in The House Next Door. He has only ever wanted the best for his family, but after surviving the events that led to his not-so-bestselling book, he’s moving everyone to his childhood home.
Carl not only contends with his wife Lorene (Zulay Henao) and kids Allie (Bresha Webb) and Carl Jr. (Alex Henderson) but everyone who drives him crazy. And nothing could be freakier than his new neighbor Dr. Mamuwalde (Williams), who may or may not be a vampire.
From co-writer/director Deon Taylor, as the Meet the Blacks universe expands, it will be up to Carl to figure out what his neighbor is up to in the middle of the night before it’s too late for him and his family.
The House Next Door: Meet the Blacks 2 arrives in theatres June 11th. Watch the trailer below.

Halston Series Trailer Released
Netflix has released the official trailer for their upcoming series Halston. Directed by Daniel Minahan, the limited series follows legendary fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick (Ewan McGregor), as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that is synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame. It literally defines the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset… the name Halston itself.
The five-episode series debuts on the streaming platform May 14th. Check out the trailer and poster below.
He changed the face of American fashion only to lose it all. What do you do when someone takes everything you’ve built?
