If someone follows me, I’ll take a look at what they have written recently, see if they are a fit for me. A lot are.

And I think a lot are just following in the hope of a follow back.

Medium isn't like Twitter. I can read dozens of tweets from people I follow and have a great conversation. But if I read a dozen five-minute reads on Medium, there’s an hour gone.

I’m afraid that for so much of Medium, it’s a matter of looking at the headline, the tiny thumbnail image, and taking a punt.


Britni Pepper has always enjoyed telling stories. About people, places and pleasures.
