It is Wednesday once again, which means it’s time for the htxt.africast.
After going over some recent (very frustrating) events in South Africa, Lungelo tells us about Twitter’s new icon which will be used as the default profile picture for new accounts. A simple enough change, which the company is spinning as some kind of do good effort at combating trolling.
Next it’s on to movies and, while the topic is the new Ghost in the Shell, we also discuss the career of Beat Takeshi, the new Power Rangers as well as remakes in general. It’s a mixed bag, really.
