Twitter Link Roundup #227 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | June 13th, 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!

I’m sure you’ve noticed the proliferation of social click-bait media designed to get people to click the latest story on silly topics. Even The Onion has joined the game by launching a parody site – Clickhole – that on the one hand, pokes fun at click-bait, but ultimately, runs monetizes through advertising, just like every other click-bait site.

The image on the left is a fun look at how famous books would be renamed if the authors were optimizing for clicks, much like those who write online click-bait articles. More examples in the Other section below.
