One of the meanings or senses of 'in touch' in English is 'in communication'. We talk of being 'in touch' with someone, meaning that we know them and that we are in communication with them. We also speak of being 'out of touch' with someone, meaning that we are not in contact with them, that we are not communicating with them. And we talk of being 'put in touch' with someone: this usually means that a third party has made contact or established communications on our behalf, between us and someone else. Sometimes, sadly, we talk of 'losing touch' with someone, meaning that we were in contact with someone, maybe through Christmas cards or WhatsApp but are no longer in communication with them.
