Readers spent a total of 303 years poring through all the posts about Donald Trump on Medium this past year (and 219 years reading everything about Hillary Clinton). That’s just one of the many stats provided by the media platform, whose traffic skyrocketed in 2016, with unique monthly views growing from 25 million to 60 million, and an explosion in content, with a quadrupling of posts and plenty of new contributors from Mark Cuban and Sam Altman to Elizabeth Warren and Amy Schumer.
