Twitter Link Roundup #209 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | January 24th, 2014

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!

There was much excitement about Amazon’s announcement some time ago that they are researching delivery of packages using drones. Here’s a fun look at another Amazon delivery service – yesterday shipping.
