Twitter Streets: Hot Trends Today – September 22
Free Netflix, in Kenya?
Fans of freebies, gather around!
Netflix has announced a free plan, only available in Kenya, that allows people to enjoy a limited catalogue of movies and series, ad-free. To sweeten the deal, no payment information is required upon sign up.
The streaming platform is making these efforts to boost subscriber growth in the Kenyan market, which boasts 20 million citizens with internet access.
The free plan will start rolling out in Kenya over the next few weeks. However, there’s a catch — It’s only available to Android users.
I was just on a call with a friend in Netflix and they just told me Kenya got FREE NETFLIX, not the 1month one but like free free 😭🙆🏽♂️. Way to go neighbors 👏🏽. If you’re in Kenya and didn’t know this, you’re welcome 😉

I didn’t have bolt originally but because of how mad I am at them for siding with criminals I am going to download it and uninstall it!#DeleteBoltApp

Halloween Kills Movie Trailer Released
Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for upcoming flick Halloween Kills. Directed by David Gordon Green, the thriller follows the lives of Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).
Minutes after the trio left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes.
As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
Halloween Kills is set for a theatrical release on October 15th. Check out the trailer below.
