Twitter Link Roundup #53 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | September 23rd, 2010

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!
