Twitter Link Roundup #69 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | January 13th, 2011

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 is from an outstanding collection of black and white photographs taken by Vivian Maier, a street photographer whose work was discovered at an auction in Chicago. Her fascinating story is in the Other section below.
