Medium picks up where Twitter left off. The online publishing platform offers writers a place to share thoughts and stories that can’t be communicated in 140 characters or less. Because Medium is a collaborative platform, users can write alongside their friends and create group documents chalk full of great ideas.
Register and sign-in to Medium with your Twitter account to get started reading and recommending posts on the platform. Medium is still in the process of inviting new users to create their own content, but you can read the content written by other contributors right away. When the mood finally strikes and you’ve got something to say, write it in Medium just like you would a traditional blog CMS. Highlight text to add formatting elements, and use keyboard shortcuts to make editing a breeze. When your post is complete, hit “Publish.” You’ll immediately be able to share the provided link with all your friends online.
People who like what you’ve written on Medium can click “Recommend” to share it with their friends, or they can leave their own notes as a way to submit comments, criticisms, and general feedback. Medium also offers pre-publishing collaboration tools, allowing you to solicit feedback from your friends by sharing a “secret link” that only they can view before your posts have gone live on Medium’s public platform.
