Twitter Link Roundup #235 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross Kimbarovsky | September 19th, 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 is from Megan MacKay. Megan takes a very creative approach in talking about a serious subject – spousal abuse (based on the recent events surrounding football player Ray Rice). Nicely done, Megan.
