Twitter Link Roundup #273 – Quintessential Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design! Mike | June 12th, 2015

Language evolves, and just like Darwin theorized, the strongest word thrive and survive and the weakest… Well the weakest just get relegated to the Oxford English Dictionary, buried somewhere around page 2,315. Our pals over at boredpanda took the time to list out a whole bunch of new words that are quickly rising to the top of the food chain. These words are portmanteaus, which are what you get when you mash both the sounds and meanings of two words together to get a new one (in many cases a brilliant one).

So enjoy your word mash, and as soon as you finish it, focus back here becauseit’s time again for our weekly Roundup! Marvel at the strength and evolutionary superiority of this week’s set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account) is keyboard perfection! We just love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
