Twitter users show ignorance - didn’t realize the Titanic was real

\"\"

Appalled and shocked…We don’t blame you.

This screen shot, of Twitter users conversing over the Titanic, has gone viral, and it’s no wonder. The shocking images show a list of Twitter users who had not realized that James Cameron’s movie "Titanic", starring Leonardo DiCaprio, was actually based on real historic event.

As Journal.ie commented “You couldn’t make it up”.

What’s even more worrying is that this isn’t an isolated event.

The Huffington Post noticed this before (see image above). And here one lost soul turns to Yahoo Answers to figure out what the truth is.

A worrying indictment of the lack of historic knowledge in the younger generations? No…I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Back to tweeting about One Direction and Niall Horan it is!
