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 January, we covered everything from NAMM factoids to the vintage mics used in The King’s Speech. 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, of course, is to follow us at www.twitter.com/prosoundnews.
