2014 Longreads content-sharing community acquired by Automattic

Book recommendation and review site Longreads was started as a Twitter hashtag five years ago and then became a global community focused on longform writing. Today it has been acquired by Automattic, the company behind the WordPress blogging platform. WordPress founder and Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg said that Longreads’ commitment to longform reading fits perfectly with his company’s desire to promote good content and that all four of Longreads’ employees would be joining Automattic. Mark Armstrong, founder of Longreads and a former journalist, said that the service would continue as it had before the acquisition, and that joining WordPress would allow the community to grow and expand. The site currently offers a free weekly email or a $3 membership that provides daily recommendations.
