Twitter Co-founders Launch Blog-like Service Called Medium [PHOTOS]
As if Twitter hasn’t revolutionised publishing and the media enough, Twitter’s co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams have launched Medium. Medium is basically a collaborative publishing tool, allowing users contribute to “collections” via photo or text in a Pinterest-like layout.
Evan Williams and Biz Stone already have a record of popular publishing platforms. The first Blogger, was launched in 1999 when Evan Williams was co-founder of Pyra Labs and the most recent Twitter, launched in 2006 with Biz Stone and Jack Dorsey. Medium was founded by The Obvious Corporation so that people can publish without “the burden of becoming a blogger” as the founders said in blog posts here and here.
Here’s a slideshow of screenshots from Medium
Medium currently allows signups via Twitter and allows you view collections and posts. Posting on the other hand, is limited to a handful and friends and family. The Obvious Corporation promises to open posting to more people soon.
