Twitter Users Surprised That ‘Titanic’ was Real

As we near the 100th anniversary of the moment the Titanic struck an iceberg that would send it to the bottom of the North Atlantic, some younger Twitter users are expressing their surprise that Titanic was a real ship and not just a movie plot.

I wish I were making this up.

The tweets are enough to make any history teacher crawl under his desk in embarrassment. One would think that the people behind the tweets would be even more embarrassed.

“[Is] it bad that I didn’t know the titanic was real? Always thought it was just a film.”

Yes. It’s bad.

Very bad.

Especially considering that the same information highway that lets them post their little tweets would also take them to a wealth of information about the ship that sunk in 1912, killing 1,514 people.

There are some things you just shouldn’t have an excuse for not knowing.
