Accquired: Summify Joins The Flock At Twitter

Summify, the Social News Summary Service has just been acquired by Twitter, and has announced that they will be closing down some features while they work on a “more streamlined service as they transition their efforts to working at Twitter.”

Starting today, the following changes will take effect, according to the Summify Blog:

We’re removing the ability to make your summaries public (i.e. all summaries will be private)
We’re removing profile pages and influence pages
We’re removing the auto-publish feature
We’re disabling user registration from the website, iPhone and Hootsuite apps

Summify will also be moving from Vancouver to San Francisco.

In case you’re wondering what Summify was, here’s their video, but expect changes as Summify inevitably becomes a part of the Twitter experience:
