Tweetastic Pro Sound News July 2010 Twitter Feed

By Clive Young. Every month, we gather up all the “tweets” that we posted the previous month on our ever-flowing Twitter stream. Not only do they make for interesting reading, but you can tell a lot about what we’ve been up to—just take this collection of posts from July. First and foremost—we moved; secondly—man, did we cover a lot of shows. While troubled concert ticket sales have been a concern, we’ve also passed along some interesting profiles and cool deals, plus our managing editor, Fred Goodman, released his first rock video. So get a gander at these tweets (presented without our web headlines, which are also tweeted daily) and remember to follow us on Twitter at @prosoundnews.
