Talk of the Tweet: Pro Sound News’ August 2010 Twitter Feed

by Clive Young. Every month, we do a recap of Pro Sound News' Twitter posts ("Tweets"), showing a bit of what we wrote about when not bringing you the latest news in pro audio. More often than not, we're sharing links to audio-related news stories, perhaps a photo or two taken onsite while covering a gig, or re-tweeting cool posts that others wrote (they have an "RT" at the beginning). Our weekdaily headlines are always posted to Twitter with links to the stories, so we leave those out when we do these compilations (after all, those headlines are still available on our website). Instead, we highlight all the small stuff that you might've missed. Some of it is wacky, some of it is dead serious, but all of it is interesting. Take a look--and don't forget to follow us on Twitter at @prosoundnews!
