TL;DR Wikipedia is a single topic blog which offers Wikipedia summaries on a wide range of topical subjects that have been edited in a humorously succinct manner, usually to the length of one or two sentences, in the spirit of the well-known Internet adage TL;DR.


The Tumblr blog TL;DR Wikipedia[1] was launched on March 13th, 2014, with its first post featuring a screenshot of a humorously terse Wikipedia article for Wikipedia itself (shown below).
