Twitter Link Roundup #128 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | April 26th, 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 a fascinating account on the excess and hubris of the International Art Market (reporting by 60 Minutes journalist Morley Safer).
