Newsbreak is all over the news:)
To be honest, Medium has suffered a lot from the latest changes. People see insane drops in reach and earnings, it is hard to discover new content and the core focus on writing has killed the other core focus… reading. Reading on Medium requires more cognitively. It’s hard to say if curation actually has an impact considering how stories are still curated and distributed, the focus is just taken away from it.
For many writers, 95% to be exact, it will be a way better deal to land 1.000 dollars on newsbreak versus 50 dollars on Medium. And by the looks of it, with the same effort.
