Five Months After Twitter Acquisition, Vancouver Startup Summify to Shut Down in June

Vancouver-born startup Summify will shut down permanently on June 22, the company has revealed. After that date, you will no longer get your precious Summify email digests.

The Canadian web company, which started in 2010, was acquired by Twitter in January. Twitter later leveraged its technology to develop and launch its own Weekly Email Digests.
