Years ago I heard about a way to search Twitter posts through summize.com.
Then I read Twitter bought Summize, and when you went to www.summize.com you were redirected to a twitter.com search page. It was too complicated to remember the URL so whenever I wanted to search Twitter (by hashtag or whatever) I went to summize.com and let the redirection occur.
I assume lots of other people did the same.
Now that doesn't work, and when I look up the domain info on summize.com, it says the name is expired and pending deletion.
Why would Twitter let the domain name go? Isn't this part of what they paid for when they bought Summize.
I am thinking of contacting Twitter and encouraging them to recover the domain so some sleazeball domainer doesn't get it.

The problem ultimately seems to be cybersquatting though the same kind of people who forget to renew their domain for $10~$30 a year are probably also likely to sue a search engine instead of using robots.txt.
(words only): SUMMIZE Standard Character claim: Yes Current Status: Abandoned:No Statement of Use filed after Notice of Allowance was issued. Date of Status: 2009-05-25 Filing Date: 2006-11-07 Transformed into a National Application: No Registration Date: (DATE NOT AVAILABLE)
Ya, it's ALWAYS the domainers and cybersquatters fault, fer shur . . . :-/

right. you forget to pay for your domain, registrar warns you, they let you know a few times before the inevitable happens, they beg you to renew it. and you don't. and the guy that takes it when it falls is a sleazeball?
what do you think business is, a charity?
they need it, want it and they take it. you let it go. I am not going to ask you too are you aware of it and are you sure you want to let it go and can I take it.
if you let it hang in the space for months before it gets deleted for real then it is most likely of NO value to you nor of no value to anyone else.
