Last year, Twitter opened up their archives allowing anyone to find anything in the entire Twitter database since the first tweet in 2006. Amit Agarwal founder of Digital Inspiration developed a web-app to help find old tweets for any topic automatically. 

Curiosity got the better of me, so I searched a couple of legal terms “ingrained in my brain” from law school. The results were not only accurate, most were downright hilarious.

Contract Law: Learning more than I ever wanted to know about contract law via @Wyndes


Family Law: In Family Law listening to a lecture about child custody (its very boring). via @uncle_catherine


Legal Research: Finishing up an assignment for my “Legal Research” class. Would rather pull fingernails off one my one… via @julie1228


Real Property: Played tennis again. Now I've got to answer some more practice questions. Real Property law is SUPER AWESOME! via @mrshl


Torts: Law of torts. Tort fits so naturally into torture. Funny that. via @damienmulley


I am glad I took the opportunity to find out the Twitter origin of some terms I use every day. If you are interested, here is the link to Agarwal’s web-app – http://ctrlq.org/first/


Happy searching!
