Summify is a curation service that cherry picks the most important news from your twitter stream. Known to many because of its iOS app, Summify helped you eliminate the noise coming from Twitter. In an announcement that'll likely disappoint its users, the Vancouver-based company confirmed on Thursday that it's being acquired by Twitter and shutting down the service.

In a blog post, Summify detailed this transition from standalone service to Twitter property. Starting yeasterday, the Summify app is no longer available from the App Store, and the service is no longer accepting new account registrations. Profile and influence pages are also being removed immediately. Email summaries will continue for the next few weeks, but, eventually, the whole service will be turned off.

The team will leave Canada and move into Twitter's San Francisco office, where they will continue to work under the leadership of the social network. Presumably, many of the popular curation features of Summify will make their way into Twitter's web and mobile apps.
