Twitter Link Roundup #245 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More

Shameless, I know, but couldn’t resist sharing with y’all a picture of our new puppy! Her name is Remy and, frankly, we’re smitten!

But, no time for puppy-love – it’s time for our weekly roundup of the 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 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!
