Twitter has clarified that it does not store names from address books, only email addreses and phone numbers.  The company initially told the Times that names were among the types of data it gathered from users'mobile contacts lists.

When users activate the service's "Find friends" feature, "the email addresses and phone numbers in your address book will be shared with Twitter," wrote Carolyn Penner, Twitter's spokesperson.  "Later, if one of your contacts signs up for Twitter with one of those email addresses and chooses to be discoverable by the address, we can connect you two."
