Twitter Link Roundup #132 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | May 25th, 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 shows 10,000 Japanese people singing Beethoven’s Ode an die Freude (Ode to Joy). I’ve never seen or heard a 10,000 person chorus – it’s pretty impressive.
