For the new comer, the twitter language can be bemusing as it has its own sland and lingo.   @ Sign-- The @ sign is an important code on Twitter, used to refer to individuals on Twitter. It is combined with a username and inserted into tweets to refer to that person or send them a public message. (Example: @username.) When @ precedes a username, it automatically gets linked to that user's profile page. A Twitter handle is a username selected by anyone using Twitter and must contain fewer than 15 characters. Each Twitter handle has a unique URL, with the handle added after twitter.com. Example: http://twitter.com/username. Then there is the ‘Hashtag’ referring to a topic, keyword or phrase preceded by the # symbol. An example is #iplseason12. Hashtags are used to categorize messages on Twitter.

Napoléon Bonaparte [1769-1821] the military leaderrose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the French Revolutionary Wars. He was Emperor of the French as Napoleon I from 1804 until 1814 and again briefly in 1815 during the Hundred Days. Napoleon dominated European and global affairs for more than a decade while leading France against a series of coalitions in the Napoleonic Wars. He was a master strategist and had brilliant legal acumen too.

The rule of law is defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as: "The authority and influence of law in society, especially when viewed as a constraint on individual and institutional behaviour; (hence) the principle whereby all members of a society (including those in government) are considered equally subject to publicly disclosed legal codes and processes."  The phrase "the rule of law" refers to a political situation, not to any specific legal rule.The rule of law implies that every person is subject to the law, including people who are lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and judges.

The Napoleonic Code was a  French civil code established under Napoleon I in 1804.  It was drafted by a commission of four eminent jurists and entered into force on 21 March 1804.  The Code, with its stress on clearly written and accessible law, was a major step in replacing the previous patchwork of feudal laws. The Napoleonic Code was not the first legal code to be established in a European country with a civil legal system; it was preceded by the Codex Maximilianeusbavaricuscivilis (Bavaria, 1756), and some more;  however, it was the first modern legal code to be adopted with a pan-European scope, and it strongly influenced the law of many of the countries formed during and after the Napoleonic Wars.

Moving on to Twitter from Napoleon, Twitter  is an American online news and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as "tweets". Tweets were originally restricted to 140 characters, but on November 7, 2017, this limit was doubled for all languages except Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.  Registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them.

Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July of that year. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity.  During the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Twitter was the largest source of breaking news on the day, with 40 million election-related tweets sent by that day.  Twitter's origins reportedly trace to  a "daylong brainstorming session" held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo.  The original project code name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams later ascribed to Noah Glass, inspired by Flickr and the five-character length of American SMS short codes.

Twitter was founded on this day, 13 years ago ! - . ..happy tweeting ~ add to your burden of time and checking on social media !!  My twitter handle is :@KairaviniSampath.
