2022 brought so many product recommendations my bank account wishes I hadn’t seen. My entire TikTok FYP is packed with makeup routines and the next hottest product. Everyone tells me I must have this product, so I tell my bank I must have that product.

Home of celebrities and neo-nazis, Twitter has it all. With nearly 400 million users globally — half of them active — the social networking and micro-blogging platform remains the central spot for 280-character musings.
