While the censorship may have been undertaken by the company in order to curb hate speech and misinformation, the problem was this: the rules around what to censor and what not to censor were drawn up by a bunch of Twitter employees. Effectively, a small group of techies got to decide what users saw and thus thought.
While Hopkins boasts a “tradition of employment excellence,” recent protests demonstrate that current employees disagree with that assessment.
If you’re reading this, you probably already know The News-Letter is back in print! For many Hopkins students, this is the first time they are seen a physical edition of their school’s newspaper.

However, starting with the class of 2026, Hopkins no longer allowed students to select their own roommates and mandated all students to be randomly paired with a roommate.
As midterm elections near, it seems that many young voters have become disillusioned with the political sphere. For many of us, it’s been a while since we were our 18-year-old selves, all registered and geared up to vote.
High school should be preparing students for the next exciting and challenging phase of their lives, which is attending university.
