Twitter Link Roundup #279 – Wow! Great Resources for Small Business, Startups, and Design!

At crowdSPRING we love latte and we also appreciate a great love story. And who better than Amy Schumer to tell a story of love and loss through the literary device of latte foam art? Follow the tale of a young couple as they meet, fall in love and, eventually, are left with only the cold, dank dregs of their bittersweet romance.

Alright – it’s time now to finish that last cup of coffee and get to work! Because we present to you, our latest 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)! 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!
