In the words of the post, “…you’ll find tweeted suggestions of long articles and short stories by serious fans of great journalism and writing.”

Along with the #longreads hashtag, they list a handful of Twitter IDs to follow for more in-depth reading:

@longreads: Run by the creator of the hashtag, this account shares the most popular articles and credits whoever surfaced it.
@somethingtoread: Shares select essays and articles that have been saved on @instapaper
@ifyouonly: If you only have time to read one thing…
@longformorg: Shares long-form reads from the past and present.
@sportsfeat: A companion to the account above but devised specifically for sports features.
