Twitter Link Roundup #71 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | January 27th, 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 the Barreleye, one of the most unusual fish in the ocean. The Barreleye has a completely transparent head (so that it’s eyes, located inside the head, can detect available prey). More unusual transparent creatures in the Random Fun section below.
