I even go a step further. I type the whole message in an editor and then paste in the chat window. Some business chat apps interrupt the recepient from the second I type the first character and then they’re waiting for me to finish typing and send the message. It annoys me when this happens to me so I am courteous to others by not doing it to them. Some people are slow typists and it feels like forever before I can see their message.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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