TRUMP SENDING TWEETS NOT NEW: JULIUS CAESAR DID IT A LONG TIME AGO !!

TRUMP  SENDING  TWEETS  NOT  NEW!!

JULIUS  CAESAR  DID  IT  LONG  AGO!!


Trump's use of Twitter being regarded as quite innovative for a head of State.

Hey, nothing new about that.  Ever hear about how Julius Caesar informed the Senate of one of his military victories??  He did it in only THREE  WORDS!!! :

Veni,  Vidi,  Vici -- three words in LATIN that is, in English it is six words:

I CAME    I  SAW    I  CONQUERED

This is how a certain historical scholar put it::



To inform his friends back in Rome of his victory, Caesar succinctly wrote, "Veni, vidi, vici," or "I came, I saw, I conquered." Even back then, people were impressed with the way Caesar summarized his triumph: Plutarch writes that "In Latin, however, the words have the same inflectional ending, and so a brevity which is most impressive."

I do not care that much for Caesar but I really like his Tweet!!  Don't you love it??!!  Very refreshing, esp. after having to read so much bureaucratic stuff!!
