    First get HomeBrew, then "brew install telnet" then use this command and it will work

    "Connection closed by foreign host" is all my mac says when I type in this command. Anyone here who could help me?

    Works in Ubuntu linux as well because MAC is just a glorified version of Linux

    Actually, Mac uses the Darwin kernel, base on BSD

    This is cool!

    Any way to kill it other than shutting down the Terminal?

    You can do it on Windows too, the process is quite similar, just open cmd and type pkgmgr /iu"TelnetClient" (hit enter) and then restart cmd. Next type Telnet (hit enter) O (hit enter) and finally type towel.blinkenlights.nl and press enter, and you're done!
