All the News that’s Fit to Tweet: Pro Sound News’ September 2010 Twitter Feed

By Clive Young. Everyone uses Twitter in their own way, and this time, Pro Sound News’ monthly compendium of tweets reveals that we use it differently from moment to moment. Most of the time, we use it to post links to our daily news stories, but if you scroll through the tweets, there’s breaking news (details of the FCC white spaces announcement); real-time accounts (our unsettling visit to a Stone Temple Pilots show); links to audio-related iPhone apps, thoughtful analysis from other news sources and just plain weird stuff (like Elmo getting into a brawl at Guitar Center). Take a look—it’s all there, minus the daily PSN headlines—and don’t forget to follow us at @ProSoundNews.
