Twitter acquires Summify, plans to shut down the service

Summify Joins The Flock At Twitter:

Our long-term vision at Summify has always been to connect people with the most relevant news for them, in the most time efficient manner. As hundreds of millions of people worldwide are signing up and consuming Twitter, we realized it’s the best platform to execute our vision at a truly global scale. Since Twitter shared this vision with us, joining the company made perfect sense.

The FAQ following the announcement doesn’t sound so great:

We will be disabling new account registrations immediately and we will also be removing some features. We will keep the email summaries for a few more weeks, but at some point we will shut down the current Summify product. In the meantime, if you’re a user of Summify you’ll still receive your summaries, just like before.

Profile pages will be removed, public summaries will cease to exist, new registrations aren’t accepted anymore.

Farewell Summify.
