Clapping for yourself
Leah Rosenberg

Medium now pays writers in their partner program, and they do it based on claps. So if you see a members-only post that the author has clapped for, they might be trying to get paid more.

(Gross, btw)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
