I don’t think that anything should stop writers from deciding their word limit.

Yes, I also believe that… But like I said it is dictating both writing and reading preferences, and actually inhibiting true talent from developing… It’s like the test matches vis-a-vis the T20s debate…one is merely entertaining while the other truly builds the skills of a cricketer, and hence both are needed.

PS: It’s not just Medium, even individual bloggers mention the time limits on their websites… But some of course have the courage to be more than 10 minutes long, and stand by their need to take more time and space…which is what new bloggers should not refrain from doing, just for the sake of popularity.
