Is Twitter Taking The Place of Business Cards?

Networking Now: Twitter In, Business Cards Out

While at a BlackBerry Storm event the other night, I couldn't help but notice the lack of business cards being exchanged between industry types. And while chatting with another blogger (who is as obsessed with phones as I am) about the upcoming E3 gaming expo, we agreed we should meet up while we were there. As I was fishing for a card to give her, she instead asked for my Twitter name and told me "business cards are so last year."

Is it true? Are business cards being put out to pasture by Twitter? I mean sure, I check my Twitter daily, and post updates as much as I can, so theoretically someone could get a hold of me via Twitter. But just the thought of not getting someone's card who is a potential industry contact kinda baffled me. It seems that Twitter is embedding itself deep into our professional lives now too. How do you feel about the new Twitter world domination?
