Next time, link part of the text on a social media platform, like Twitter, and you'll get paid for it. Most writers just post the link on a social media platform. Medium registers that as external view and you don't get a penny. But if you link part of the text (you'll realise when you highlight the section you want to share), that counts as an internal read, even though it's shared outside Medium.
