Twitter Link Roundup #200 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | November 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! Can you believe this is Roundup number 200!?!? Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

Do you still use business cards for your business? The above video is a funny look at how some people feel about business cards.
