Twitter Link Roundup #239 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | October 17th, 2014

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, we post links to posts or videos we 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 we’ve liked and shared this past week!
