Earn from Twitter-like posts? Yes, please!

Everyone is talking about the β€œnew” (but not really new) short form publishing on Medium. It’s always been around. The difference is that your profile shows the whole content and Medium is promoting them kind of as a paid Twitter option.

Short form posts on Twitter should have the first line bolded, so that Medium knows it is a short form post. They should be about 150 words or less, so the entirety of the post appears on your profile page. And yes, you get paid for them.

Something I quickly checked on was how long the first sentence should be if you want it to act as a heading. The answer? 44 characters. If you make your first sentence as close to this as possible, it will appear as a heading.

Another tip: modify the subtitle section when you submit your story!
