The most useful posts of July 2009

July 2009. Forty years after walking on the moon, Neil Armstrong used Twitter to remember an old friend. Sarah Palin resigned as Governor but made sure that she could be online on 2012. Martha Stewart decided that Twitter was the way to go over Facebook. This was a good thing because Twitter seemed to be banned at the White House (although they later Tweeted a categorical denial). Hard working web marketers were spending the summer getting ready for an economic recovery. Here are the midsummer posts that they found most useful this month.
