Is there anything that can actually be done to kill the Buzzfeeds and HuffPos?

I started making BF quizzes in 2017, in HS. That was my initial bio after I got my first quiz promoted. I was happy and couldn鈥檛 believe my quiz was good enough for BF to promote it. I know it鈥檚 not gonna happen, i just thought it was funny & i haven鈥檛 really thought of it since https://t.co/pCPqGb5pbu

So how much of their quiz revenue is reliant on this one unpaid user not stopping?

Oh good, Twitter seems to be persuading her to leverage her traffic and ask for payment.

Between April 2017 and December 2018, Rachel drove a conservative estimate of $3.8m in revenue for BuzzFeed (or 1% of their entire 2018 revenue). For free. https://t.co/H5U0xhnDPZ
