Twitter co-founders create online publishing site
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - A website launched by Twitter co-founders as a publishing platform for stories, memories and news was open on Wednesday to members of the hit one-to-many text messaging service.
A preview version of Medium.com, launched by Mr Biz Stone and Mr Evan Williams, was live with collections such as This Happened To Me stories and When I Was a Kid pictures.
"We're rethinking publishing and building a new platform from scratch," Mr Williams said in a message on the site.
"Lots of services have successfully lowered the bar for sharing information, but there's been less progress toward raising the quality of what's produced."
