She found that whereas Medium saves web page hyperlinks that open in an in-app browser, the platform additionally scrapes a web page’s contents to create an unlisted story. Further, that unlisted story comprises the entire article regardless that the unique web page is behind a paywall. It additionally stays on the platform even after you delete the hyperlink you saved. Publishers possible would not be very proud of the way in which it really works in the mean time, particularly because it additionally appears to strip advertisements off a web page. The characteristic may very well be a lot completely different by the point it turns into accessible, although, if ever Medium decides to launch it.
