Terminal error message

I am trying to follow along with the video and typing what is said into my terminal (Mac computer) but am getting this error message: zsh: command not found: telnet

Does anyone know what is going on? The teacher notes says that Telnet should already be installed on my computer since it's a Mac.

Thank you in advance!

it doesn't work on the latest version of MAC os. Here is an article where it shows the alternative way: https://osxdaily.com/2018/07/18/get-telnet-macos/

Also, in the video, it says you can use workspaces in case you cannot get it running on your terminal

to do it on your workspace, you can watch the video titled, "HTTP request using telnet". and fast forward to minute 6:10
