How Tweet it Is: PSN's April Twitter Feed

by Clive Young. You can learn a lot about a month simply by looking at the Twitter posts ("tweets") that got made throughout the course of it. Take our April 2010 Pro Sound News tweets: The first few were links to goofy fake April Fool's Day articles covering everything from Lectrosonics to Kanye West. Next up were a rash of links to Pro Audio apps for Apple's iPad, which was introduced the first weekend of the month. By the time we mentioned FOH engineer Robert Scovill's blog about Tom Petty tour rehearsals, you knew it was getting towards shed season. And in between, there was ephemera ranging from NAMM and AES trade show announcements, to the 'I can't look away' violent destruction of an aged DDA Q-Series monitor desk. All of which means you should follow us on Twitter at @ProSoundNews -- clearly our Twitter feed ain't just headlines. To wit, here's most of our April tweets, minus the links to daily news stories on prosoundnews.com.
