Twitter Link Roundup #95 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | July 21st, 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 video above shows actor Jim Meskimen. In the video, Jim impersonates 25 famous people, including Woody Allen, Jack Nicholson and Droopy Dog, reciting Clarence’s monologue from Shakespeare’s Richard III.
