About Chat React

The appetites of audiences is constantly changing. 

When social media came out, almost 20 year ago, society held a fascination for the possibilities of realising the potential of social ties.  That feels like a long time ago today.  Unlike then, the audience of 2022 is largely made up of digital natives, always connected, and hungry for bite-sized news, knowledge and entertainment.

For many, social channels have become congested, fanciful, full of irrelevance.  This is partly because everyone is ‘on the same channel.’  Nevertheless, the success stories of Twitter and TikTok go to show that tastes have changed towards nibbling on information and entertainment. 

TwoMinuteReads.Com is a FREE blog and newswire service designed for writers, and people who still like to read.  We’re serving communities of individuals that lack ‘a place’ to share their community news, knowledge and information.  What makes our platform unique, is that it guarantees readers get to read abridged versions of content.  When we say it’s a two minute read, we mean it.  Four hundred words is all you get.

We’re making TwoMinuteReads.Com a neat, friendly, helpful place to be for people who like to write, and for those who like to read.
