Every month, Pro Sound News gathers up its Twitter “tweets” from the previous calendar page and presents them on our blog for your reading pleasure. In December, there were fewer posts than usual due to the holidays, but there was still plenty to enjoy, from thoughtpieces and new gear to reports of a museum devoted to the beloved 8-track tape format. Most of PSN’s tweets are our daily headlines on this website, but this list collects everything else we posted. The best way to enjoy our Twitter feed, however, is to follow us at www.twitter.com/prosoundnews.
