Twitter Link Roundup #151 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | October 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 image above shows the Venezuelan poodle moth, a tiny moth (a little more than one inch in size). This photo was taken by zoologist Arthur Anker. Did you know the Venezuelan poodle moth is one of 11,000+ species of moth in the Arctiidae family? More fun photos in the Other section below.
