OMG, unbelievable but true: World commemorated the centenary of Titanic wrecking but the event apparently turned out to be quite educational for dozens Twitter users who have just discovered Titanic really happened!!! (scroll down for proof)
“Titanic” was just a film, not a real case!!!” At least that has been so far the opinion of many websurfers posting on the popular social network Twitter.
While the world just celebrated over the weekend the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking, a large number of users posting on the micro-blogging website have acknowledged they did not know that world’s most famous shipwreck was indeed a real ship. More specifically, the folks were not able to figure out that the famous Hollywood production was based on a true story.
It looks like the “uninformed” tweeters sparked a large online backlash, with many expressing outrage at such a lack of knowledge.
RMS Titanic sank on early morning of April 15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg during its journey from Southampton to New York. The young generation is more familiar with the 1997 film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, than the real incident.
