Twitter Link Roundup #167 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | February 22nd, 2013

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 a very cool 3D printing pen – a project currently on Kickstarter. You’ve probably hard of 3D printers, but this takes 3D printing to another level of portability. Imagine drawing in three dimensions. For real!
