In late January, Twitter acquired Summify, a social media curation service I’d come to rely on. I was heartbroken, and made preparations for a future without Summify as it shut down and folded into the Twitterplex. But, six months later, there’s new hope.
First of all, Twitter has announced a weekly email digest, which will deliver relevant tweets straight to your inbox. The content will include popular tweets from your connections, as well as those seen by your connections from people you may not follow. Hey, kind of like Summify! Maybe we can still get back together! Actually, Summify isn’t even gone. I’m still getting twice-daily messages from my ex, and their website’s still active, as of today. It’s just like old times, but I don’t expect this to last long, now that Twitter’s fully in the mix.
