    Mac-os high sierra disabled telnet support, you can use the command, "nc towel.blinkenlights.nl" without quotes and it should work

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

    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!
