Twitter Link Roundup #181 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | May 31st, 2013

coverphotos

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 a mosaic of the most interesting photos from Flickr, based on Flickr’s mysterious “interesting” metric. Here’s the original, interactive version.
