//Keypad Number to Letter Mapping

//empty or wrong input

Returns minimum time difference from a given list of HH:mm time entries
public long getMinDifferenceInMinutes(String[] journal){
if(journal == null) return 0;
if(journal.length == 0) return 0;
//Using a set to store unique and valid entries
//if any entry is duplicated, it will auto break because that will be the minimum time difference
//TreeSet stores data in natural order - O(Log N) time complexity - better than sorting array with NLogN
//sorting keeps times close together and will eliminate comparing each entry with all other elements
//Tradeoff extra space for faster sort process
