Twitter, Facebook, blog posts, and text messages can often convey thoughts and ideas in a small, constrained number of words. While reading short bits of information may be informative and even helpful at times, there's still a place for long form journalism,
even if it isn't at the forefront of popular media. But if you're looking for a longer piece to read — even just to fill a set amount of time — there's a new site to help indulge your curiosity. Longreads, a just-launched site devoted to cataloging longer but still newsworthy journalistic works, launched originally as a Twitter feed and has now morphed into a larger site.
Find out more about this new site after the break.
