Twitter Link Roundup #216 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | March 21st, 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 was created by student Brian Hull. In the video, he sings the hit song “Frozen” in the voices of 21 Disney and Pixar Characters. Most are spot on.
