@BLACKPINK  has managed to become the biggest girl group in the world precisely by allowing its members—Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa—to be solo stars in their own right. Find out why the group is TIME's 2022 Entertainer of the Year:

Former Twitter moderators like Yoel Roth admitted they were censoring opinions simply because they personally disagreed with them. It's ridiculous. I'm glad Elon has driven out all of these whiners.

36.Twitter files continued: "THE FIRST AMENDMENT ISN’T ABSOLUTE” Szabo’s letter contains chilling passages relaying Democratic lawmakers’ attitudes. They want “more” moderation, and as for the Bill of Rights, it's "not absolute"
