Twitter Link Roundup #213 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | February 28th, 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!

The video above is a phenomenal cover version of Guns N’ Roses hit “Sweet Child O’ Mine” done New Orleans Style by Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox. I guarantee you’ve never heard this song covered like this.
