All A Twitter: Pro Sound News’ October, 2010 Twitter Feed

By Clive Young. Every day, we use Twitter to bring you links to our latest headlines, but we also use it to spread the word about different things, whether they’re interesting articles in the mainstream media or important announcements from organizations like AES. Reading back our Tweets from October, we found a spate of new singles released in obscure formats (wax cylinders, anyone?), promoted the heck out of our interview with country music superstar Kenny Chesney, and found lots of amusing audio-related stuff out there on the web. Here’s a run down of most of it, minus our daily news headlines. To get the latest in Pro Audio, make sure to follow us at @ProSoundNews!
