Twitter has been making some big changes as of late. Back in January, the micro-blogging site had announced that it’s now available to be used in 21 languages thanks to the help of over 400,000 volunteers in its Translation Center.
Now in an email that was sent out on Sunday, Twitter users were informed that they will soon start receiving weekly emails that will be containing the “best of Twitter” in digest form. This includes the most relevant tweets and stories you are more likely to read and top tweets as seen by people you follow.
The digest email will be rolled out over the coming weeks. You can control how your digest looks by heading to the Notifications Settings in your Twitter account.
UPDATE:An email announcing the shut down of Summify (now owned by Twitter) announced that the former Summify team was behind the email digest project. Here is the email in full:

About four months ago Summify was acquired by Twitter and our team joined the flock. It was a very exciting moment for us and since then we’ve been working on ways to make it easier for you to discover what matters to you on Twitter. For example, last week we announced a Twitter email digest delivered to your inbox.
We are going to focus our efforts on making Twitter even more engaging and useful for you. While we can’t get into details on what’s to come, we can say that we’re excited and we think you will be too.
Since we’ll be focusing our efforts on projects at Twitter, we have decided to shut down Summify onJune 22nd, 2012. On that date, you will no longer be able to access your digests or profile information, all of which will be deleted.
If you have a Twitter account connected to Summify and you are subscribed to the email summary, you don’t need to do anything. Everyone with a Twitter account who is subscribed to the Summify digest will begin to receive the new Twitter email digest by June 22nd, 2012.
Currently, the Twitter digest is sent to users on a weekly basis. To allow for a smooth transition for you and other Summify users with a Twitter account, we will be sending the Twitter digest to Summify users on a daily basis.
What if I don’t have a Twitter account?
The Twitter digest doesn’t support stories from Facebook or Google Reader. The best way to continue receiving our new digests of Tweets and stories is to sign up for Twitter.
Thanks for all your enthusiasm and support for Summify. We’re excited to continue building an even more compelling Twitter experience for you!
The Summify Team
