Twitter Link Roundup #70 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | January 20th, 2011

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 image above is the ten story Tianzi Hotel in the Hebei Province, China. The three men which form the hotel’s facade are Fu Lu Shou (in Chenese, this means fortune, prosperity and longevity). A photo of the Tianzi Hotel, plus dozens of other unusual buildings around the world, is in the Industrial Design section below.
