Twitter Link Roundup #189 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | July 26th, 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 fascinating social experiment conducted in a park. Three people (a white guy, a black guy and a pretty white girl) openly try to steal a bike. How do people react? It’s a fascinating study in racial and sexual prejudices.
