Twitter Link Roundup #162 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | January 18th, 2013

jaws

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 is one of 100 examples of ideas that changed film. Most of you should recognize the image from the film Jaws (1975). John Williams’s musical score played a big role in heightening the suspense in the movie. For more ideas that changed film, look in the Other section below.
