    Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, made TIME magazine's list of top influencers on the Internet for the third straight year.

    The unranked list of "The 25 Most Influential People on the Internet," which was released on Tuesday, was created after evaluating contenders based on their "global impact on social media" and their "overall ability to drive news."

    "BTS are well on their way to becoming a household name -- if they aren't already -- thanks to their millions-strong fanbase of digital natives [known as 'the Army'] who avidly consume and promote their content online," the magazine said.

    The list also includes U.S. President Donald Trump, pop star Ariana Grande and British royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
