Yahoo Mail’s smart “contact cards” now include support for Twitter and LinkedIn information and will allow users to see a contact’s most recent tweets in addition to company, title, phone number and more, when they hover over a person’s name in a message.

Yahoo Mail had first rolled out contact cards as an enhancement in March in response to Google’s revamp of its own Google Contacts service. The cards were designed to pull out extra information about the person you’re emailing with from outside sources as well as from your own inbox, reported TechCrunch.

With the new social media integrations, Yahoo said that it will now be able to pull in names for email addresses, profile photos and links to their social media profiles.
