I stumbled across this the other day. That the Library of Congress is now also found on Medium.com @librarycongress).
It seems to focus on stories. The website itself states “An app designed for readers on the go.”
After looking around the website I now know of more sources for the reading that I just don’t have time for! So much content, so little time
You can choose topics of interest to follow (if you want to sign up) and then you can follow people or publications that maybe relevant to your interests.
As I explored, I did come across a page for the Texas General Land Office (@txglo) which looks interesting.
Both of these are part of the History category.
Apparently, some content is free to read and for others you need to become a subscribing member.
