As do I. It didn’t start until the 1k follower mark. Getting there required engagement. After that, I could ignore the platform for days and add 50 followers, of which maybe 5 looked real. I’m not going for that kind of stat padding. Not why I’m here. Not why most writers come to Medium, I suspect. If we were that type, we’d publish wherever and buy Twitter followers.
