Twitter Link Roundup #249 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Mike | December 26th, 2014

One Direction without autotune. ‘Nuf said.

And now, perfectly in tune and in the proper key, it’s time for our weekly roundup! Great links and articles we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account). We do like to talk about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! I hope you enjoy!
