Do writers get paid?

No, writers are not paid. We are not a traditional news outlet that employs reporters and editors. ニュース.com is a community-based platform for sharing local news. We are actually closer to social sharing sites such as Twitter and Instagram. The differences is we have a very specific focus: original, hyperlocal news. So, you can think of us as Twitter where every tweet is an original local news story. Our articles are a little longer than tweets of course, but the idea is the same.
