Twitter Link Roundup #178 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | May 10th, 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!

Do you love the TV series The Walking Dead? What if you tried lip reading and changed the dialogue based on what you thought people were saying … the video above is probably what you’d hear. Plus, for the first time, you can hear the zombies talking!
