Right In The Tweet Spot: PSN's May Twitter Feed

by Clive Young. Pro Sound News posts ‘tweets’ on Twitter all the time. Many of them are our weekday headlines from prosoundnews.com (five stories a day, 25 stories a week!), but that’s not all we crow—er, tweet—about. We also pass along links to everything from software updates to mainstream articles about pro audio; re-tweet (RT) insights from readers and info from organizations like AES and InfoComm; and in at least one instance, make cheap jokes about Keith Richards’ upcoming autobiography. In short, if you’re on Twitter, you oughta follow @prosoundnews. Need proof? Here's most of our May tweets, minus the prosoundnews.com headlines
