I regularly give at least 10 claps to a story, and more than a few times I’ve gone up into the 30…

Thanks for pointing this out and I believe that picking 30 claps a more appropriate number is arbitrary. If Medium decided that 30 claps was the maximum then people would award claps in the same scale as if they would a 50 clap maximum. As long as Medium is identifying peoples clapping patterns then the same issue is negated!

Like what you read? Give Tanmay Jain a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
