The brains behind the innovative platforms of Twitter and Blogger have now created Medium, a new kind of writing platform. No longer restricted by the 140-character world of tweets, writers can use Medium to publish anything they want—op-eds to manifestos—straight onto Medium’s site. It is a collaborative platform: posts link easily to other posts within the site and writers can solicit the help of other users for editing. And writers never need to worry about their posts getting lost in the mix, or sent to the wrong audience—using a combination of algorithms and editorial logic, posts are automatically spread across the site, meaning even novice authors can have their posts seen by hundreds of thousands of readers.
