Twitter, the social media sensation, is rumored to buy Summize, the Twitter search engine.

Summize is widely considered to be the best search engine for Twitter conversations.

Of course there are skeptics about the acquisition given that it was reported in TechCrunch:

The Social Times:

"Want a good way to build a popular blog? Make up a story! According to “the sources” of what appears to be a high school student, Summize is being acquired by Twitter. Mike Arrington's verification model for this source? Why a FriendFeed post from Jason Calacanis of course! Mike Arrington has confirmation that the two companies were talking but no acquisition confirmation.

Hat tip to Josh Chandler for breaking the news.
