Hello, Medium Shortform. Oh, how I loved you even you didn’t exist. Of course, people will complain about you in their 700-word “long” stories. Yes, some call ‘700 words’ long. They’ll complain despite the fact that they are free to publish long-form stories. Let them. Stay here. I’ve been a big fan all this while; even when everyone was blindly rallying behind longer-content; even when everyone would synonymize short-form content as poor quality; even when they would pack their 100-word ideas and opinions in 2,000-word articles. I am glad you’re here. Medium’s engineers may try to f#ck things up and remove you but I do hope you stay.
