Twitter Link Roundup #168 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | March 1st, 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 is a look at some of the crazy (and fun) things people do to have fun and entertain. Some pretty incredible and inspiring examples.
