Despicable, shameful title. #politics
#Medium now fully completed their paywalling efforts. The public page's now completely inaccessible without logging in.
The ability to search for new #content written by independent creators? Gone! The goal's to usurp content created by others free of charge to make you pay the centralized platform to access it.
Ehmmm... m'kay, and how likely is that? 😃
Hm... what could be the implication here?
Medium.com has been going to shit for a bunch of years now, even if we skip over data ownership for a second.
It's descend into a premium walled garden is now complete, with pay-to-get-seen policies running amok over there.
It is really at a fitting point in time that #Plume is on its way to replace it.
Saw this, instantly felt that there's just that little bit more justice in the world 😉
Thank you for your time and effort.
This is simply pure genius. Well played; #copyleft:
