Twitter has caught on with the Titanic 3D fever as tweets from all over are buzzing about the release of the 3D version of this film directed by James Cameron. Twitter tweets also show how the film had people talking that it has already been 100 years since the “unsinkable” ship hit an iceberg and sunk in the Atlantic Ocean.
On the other hand, there are tweets as well that show ignorance. Some people tweet that they did not know the true story that is Titanic, that it was a real big boat and not just fiction from James Cameron’s mind.
Keith Andrews, a Pocketgamer, created a document collecting several tweets from users saying that they were surprised that the Titanic is indeed a real ship in history.
One Twitter user asked if it is bad he/she didn’t know that the boat was real. One user said that a cruise is definitely one he or she would never ride.
It makes one wonder if these Twitter netizens are joking, because in many schools, the Titanic disaster helps portray irony, and it seems common knowledge enough, especially when the film first screened in 1997.
The Titanic hashtag #TITANIC from the History Channel feed gives tweets following real time scenario to the short 5-day voyage of the ship. Furthermore, Ancestry.com opened up Titanic archives for a limited time, April 9-15, 2012.
