Twitter Link Roundup #166 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | February 15th, 2013

Bill Gates

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 photo above shows a young Bill Gates during his early days at Microsoft. This week, Gates participated in a phenomenal Reddit AMA (ask me anything). There’s a tremendous wealth of insight in his answers and the way he engaged the Reddit audience. I encourage you to spend some time reading the AMA – you’ll learn a great deal. The link is in the Other section below.
