SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter has acquired Summify, a Vancouver-based social news aggregator.
“We’re extremely excited to announce that Summify has been acquired by Twitter!” Summify announced on its website on Thursday.
Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Summify provides users with a summary of news from members of their social networks and delivers it by email, through a Web browser or to a mobile device.
“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,” Summify said.
“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,” Summify said.
Originally from Romania, Summify’s founders, Mircea Pasoi and Cristian Strat, moved to Vancouver two years ago. They plan to relocate to San Francisco to work out of Twitter’s headquarters.
Summify said that with the acquisition by Twitter it would stop accepting new accounts and shut down some features.
Virginia Democrats are so fired up that the party chair had to scold them: ‘Sit down — be quit’
Democrats in Virginia are fired up as they gathered in Richmond for their annual gala dinner.

Patrick Wilson, a political reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, attended the event.
He reported that Democrats were so "noisy" that it was hard to hear the speakers, which include presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.
The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."
There's little mystery about how the night will go down.
Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
