I actually tried to explain to an angry author that I was new to Medium and didn’t know that you could clap more than once because i joined after earnings were determined by reading time. I treated the clap button like the like button on Facebook. If you press like more than once it unlikes. I didn’t want to unclap.

They were still mad.

Top Writer in Politics and Government. I always speak my mind.
