T's and C's do not apply

The possessive apostrophe is one of the most misused pieces of punctuation, cropping up everywhere, except where it should be. The most common one seen everywhere is T's and C's apply.

Social media platforms have risen and fallen, and with them, far too many newly minted social media celebrities to name.
