Twitter Link Roundup #79 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | March 25th, 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 to the left – a cat – is one of many different images and videos of cats that fascinate people. Read the interview with Ben Huh (in the Social Media and Marketing section below) to find out why people are so fascinated by cats.
