CloudContacts Integrates Twitter’s @Anywhere Platform

CloudContacts, a startup aiming to make the information stranded on business cards more accessible, today announced integration with Twitter’s @Anywhere platform.
CloudContacts is a cloud-based address book (to learn more about the cloud, check out our Structure conference in June). Snap photos of business cards with the camera on your phone, email them to the app, and the information on the cards will be added to your CloudContacts database, which can then be exported to whatever address book or CRM system you use. I was impressed with the service when I reviewed it last year.
The new Twitter integration is built on top of CloudContacts’ Social Connector feature, which automatically tries to find the social networking accounts (Facebook, LinkedIn, Flickr, Twitter, etc.) of your contacts from their email addresses (it presumably works in a similar way to services like MailBrowser and Rapportive). Once CloudContacts has found your contacts’ Twitter details, you can just click to follow contacts directly from your CloudContacts account, and also see which of your contacts you’re already following — because it uses @Anywhere, you won’t need to go to the Twitter web site.
