contacts twitterWith the release of Mountain Lion, Twitter integration was added to Contacts. It is a fairly easy process to set up.

  1. Go to the Systems Preferences
  2. Click the Mail, Contacts & Calendars tab
  3. Add your Twitter account information (if you haven’t already)
  4. Click Update Contacts button. Twitter will then use the email addresses and phone numbers from your Contacts to add the Twitter user names and photo’s to your Contacts
  5. When the process has completed you will see an message at the bottom of the screen indicating how many Contacts were updated.
  6. Now go to your Contacts app and skim through your Contacts list to be sure those updates were integrated
  7. For those that were not picked up, you can manually add their Twitter information into their individual record. When you hover your mouse over the Twitter line, you will see an option to View Tweets or even send a Tweet to your Contact
