A lightweight publishing platform has been launched by two of the team who created Twitter.
Evan Williams and Biz Stone have launched Medium as part of an attempt to rethink how we publish content on the Web in an age of supposed democratised distribution.
Medium is essentially a blogging tool that is less constrained than Twitter but simpler than William and Stone’s previous offering, Blogger. The site enables users to post either large pictures, words, or a combination of the two. Posts are grouped by category and can be voted on by other users. The site also uses links to Twitter instead of user profiles.
