Twitter Link Roundup #127 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | April 13th, 2012

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 video above is an 11 minute short about a 9 year old boy in East L.A. who built a very elaborate cardboard arcade inside his father’s used auto parts store. It’s a fascinating look at curiosity, drive, and flash mobs.
