Top Tech Tweets for July

The latest technology news from the Twittersphere

For many of us (myself included), Twitter has quickly become the "go to" place for insightful and witty tweets about all of the latest in the tech world. I've compiled a number of tweets from the last few weeks that sum up what I saw as some of the more interesting news of late.
