Betwixt and Betweet: Pro Sound News' Twitter Feed for March, 2011

by Clive Young. Most of PSN's tweets are our daily headlines on this website, but this list collects everything else we posted in the month of March. It's a fairly varied list, too, ranging from insights into the myth of mixing on crummy speakers, to new bills on wireless allocation, to a 60-minute documentary on the history of the Wah-Wah pedal. The best way to enjoy our Twitter feed, of course, is to follow us at www.twitter.com/prosoundnews.
