Twitter Link Roundup #187 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | July 12th, 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 11 fun minutes of beatbox brilliance – a talk by Tom Thum at TEDxSydney.
