Why I Clap 50 Times

Even for One Clap Articles

The other day I read an article on Medium by a writer who decidedly gives every single article one clap, even when they deem it worthy of more. They didn’t give their reasoning, but rather gave permission for others to do the same. Their article intrigued me. As someone who almost always gives writers 50 claps, I wanted to understand what motivated another writer to discourage multiple claps.
