If You Don’t Like What’s Happening on Medium…Let Their Investors Know

There’s this funny little website called Crunchbase…

And you can use it to look up all kinds of interesting information. For example, you can look up the lastest news on a company. You can also see their funding rounds and the money they raised through their investors.

View Medium’s funding history here.

Can you believe Medium has raised $163 million dollars in 4 rounds of funding? In 2021 they secured $31 million in venture funding. Wow! That’s a lot of cash!

The thing that I like most about Crunchbase is that you can actually look and see who invests in companies.

Check out more of Medium’s investors here.

So…if you weren’t getting a response from support, you could (in theory) contact the investors of Medium and ask what’s going on.

For example, did you know that 2 of Medium’s biggest investors are on X? Yep. They sure are. If you’re unhappy, you can contact them directly just by writing a post and tagging them in it. Spark Capital is here. Mark Andreesson of Andreeson and Horowitz is here.

I contacted them via Twitter on a now-deleted post and received direct response from Tony Stubblebine himself.

Was it helpful or honest?

No. But it beats waiting on an answer from Medium Support that never comes.

(For what it’s worth Spark Capital is also here on Medium if you want to go and let them know how you are finding the new changes.)

If you’re wondering where your payments are, ask Medium’s investors.

If you want to know what’s going on with the suspicious traffic or dropping stats, ask Medium’s investors.

Whatever you do, make your voice heard. This platform used to be one that prized its writers. Maybe we can bring it back by letting Medium’s investors know what a mess things have become.

Happy tweeting ❤️
