We all have to start somewhere

Hello, everyone! Welcome to the official blog of Four Ewes Design. Here we will post informative and interesting articles about the web industry, marketing, e-commerce, and just stuff we think you will enjoy. If you ever have a topic that you wish us to cover, or if you come across something you'd like us to share, please let us know!

It was only a mere prototype in March of that year, and in July TechCrunch covered it for the first time.

This has its drawbacks, of course, but the general public now have the ability to make real change, just by typing 140 characters. Didn't like that new Batman movie? Tweet it! Not happy with your boss? Tweeted! Just ate the best turkey club EVER? Tweet, tweet!

Twitter is just one example of how social media has changed communication, and we as small business owners and entrepreneurs will only be successful if we know how to navigate this brave new world of technology. Things are about to get interesting...
