    I don't understand 5A or 7A... or what eminor means.
    • Jon 3:23 · 2023-03-02T04:50:48.599Z
      E minor is the key. I'm with you on 5 and 7A.

        THE key...of what? Also, I mashed "give up" because...I have no idea what's going on in this puzzle.

          The prompt is "there's a secret key to this puzzle." The clues for 5A and 7A are for the two-letter answers RT and SE. But the full entries are REMIT / SNORE. The unclued "secret" letters, in grid order, are EMINOR, which is a musical key, and the meta answer.

          RT=retweet and SE=southeast fit the clues. The extra letters in the middle gave the meta.
