Medium, the blog-publishing platform and brainchild of Twitter co-founder Evan Williams, has already revolutionized how we blog and how we distribute written content. Everyone from startup bloggers to high profile journalists are on Medium to spread their message.
This week the platform announced it just raised $54 million to expand its coverage, and has even suggested that it will invest in its own journalistic content very soon.
Most importantly, Medium's rise in the digital world shows the democratization of journalism, as people from all walks of life share real stories in real time. With its easy-to-use interface and streamlined content creation experience, Medium very well could become the go-to web source for everything from long form articles to brand marketing content.
Medium is set to expand on new strategic partnerships during a press release scheduled on October 7.
