As soon as the New York Times launched its paywall, we braced ourselves for all the people who were going to write about how to get around it.
The most creative so far was unearthed by Alexis Madrigal, Senior Editor at The Atlantic. Yesterday he posted about a Twitter account called @FreeNYT that pledged to post every single Times article. It’s a clever idea, because as we told you, there is no limit on how many articles are viewed through Twitter.
The account posted some tweets yesterday, but they’re now gone, so maybe the author is having a change of heart. Or maybe he or she is realizing that posting a link to every single Times article, every single day, is a lot of work just to stick it to The Man.
