MashLogic, the Menlo Park company that makes those little pop-up windows you either love or hate, has now added links to trending Twitter topics related to the Web pages you visit. The company has also closed a $500,000 angel round.
The service works through a browser plug-in. Once you’ve downloaded the plugin, Mashlogic includes links to information it thinks you might find useful.
One investor, About.com co-founder Scott Kurnit, has joined the company’s board of directors.
MashLogic has also incorporated Twitter’s API into its product: “We now automatically add links to trending Twitter topics and Twitter profiles (@names) on web pages,” writes MashLogic VP of Products and Strategy, Ranjit Padmanabhan. “You can explore these topics or user profiles, or tweet, without leaving the page you’re reading.”
