Twitter Link Roundup #60 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | November 11th, 2010

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image above shows the label for Buttface Amber Ale – one of a number of ridiculous beer names in the marketplace (see full post in the Random Fun section below) from huffingtonpost.com
