PSNs February Pro Audio Tweets

By Clive Young. Social media is always a popular topic at PSN, primarily because it’s useful for getting our daily headlines out fast (they always appear on Twitter and Facebook with links to the full stories on this site). That said, it’s also useful for passing along audio bargains we’ve heard about and breaking news from other sources (for instance, London’s Financial Times broke the story that Abbey Road Studios was for sale at 1 AM on a Monday morning, so we linked to it ASAP until we could bring you PSN’s coverage later that day). And of course, social media can also help one share the web’s true forte: amusing weird stuff obliquely related to the topic at hand. With that, here’s some of PSN’s February 2010 tweets, excluding the tons of daily www.prosoundnews.com headlines. Remember to follow us on Twitter at @ProSoundNews!
