Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today – May 7
Goodbye Twitter Crop, Welcome Tip Jar
“No bird too tall, no crop too short”. Good news for artists and creatives as Twitter has done away with cropped images for bigger and better images on your timeline.
The microblogging platform is also testing Tip Jar, a new way to give and receive money on Twitter. “You drive the conversation on Twitter and we want to make it easier for you to support each other beyond Follows, Retweets, and Likes,” read a statement on Twitter blog.
For now, a limited group of people around the world who use Twitter in English can add Tip Jar using a Paypal link to their profile and accept tips – and Twitter takes no cut. This group includes creators, journalists, experts, and nonprofits.

Stranger Things Season 4 Teaser Released
Netflix has released the first official teaser trailer for the fourth installment of Stranger Things. The minute-long clip, titled Eleven, are you listening?, takes us back to teen Eleven’s life (Millie Bobby Brown) in the Rainbow Room during her stay at Hawkins National Laboratory.
The upcoming season’s plot and release date are yet to be revealed as “the pandemic definitely massively delayed shooting and therefore the launch of our current Season 4, date still TBD,” according to producer Shawn Levy in a past Collider interview.
Check out the first look at Stranger Things Season 4 below.

WaJesus Scandal: The Internet Reacts
Kabi WaJesus topped trends for the better part of Thursday following his latest baby drama scandal. The YouTuber took to Instagram to acknowledge that he indeed sired a seven-year-old child, Abby, with his cousin prior to months of speculation. “I wish to confirm that Yesterday [Wednesday May 5th] paternity results were issued that confirmed that I am the biological father of the child [Abby],” read part of the statement.
The scandal broke just three months after Kabi, alongside his wife Milly, publicly denied getting the cousin pregnant. “The lady you see in this picture is my cousin, and the baby we took this picture with is called Abby and she is my niece. How can someone say you are the father of your cousin’s child?” He said in the now deleted YouTube video which had garnered over 500,000 views.
Here’s what the internet had to say;
