comment_icon 0 A new Era of Online Publishing

Recently a Website is launched by the Twitter co-founders,as a Completely new publishing platform. Currently the website is launched as a preview only but still so many members already registered on the site.
In the welcome note  says that  
We’re rethinking publishing and building a new platform from scratch. This is a preview.
But when there is already so many Platforms Available for Publishing then Why Medium ? 
For that the Evan Williams Says that
The Obvious Corporation decided to take on the project of building a new publishing platform from scratch
Media is still the “connective tissue of society,” as Clay Shirky eloquently put it. And we think it can be better. Better for creators. Better for consumers. Better for the world.

So, we’re re-imagining publishing in an attempt to make an evolutionary leap, based on everything we’ve learned in the last 13 years and the needs of today’s world.

That sounds pretty grandiose, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Truth be told, we’re just starting the journey of figuring out what all that means—and what we’re releasing today is just a sliver of what we’ve figured out.
How Medium is gonna Work ? 
Medium is designed to allow people to choose the level of contribution they prefer. We know that most people, most of the time, will simply read and view content, which is fine. If they choose, they can click to indicate whether they think something is good, giving feedback to the creator and increasing the likelihood others will see it.
