Here’s a pretty novel use of Twitter: follow the Titanic on its voyage towards impending doom – by following @TitanicRealTime. This account seems to be owned by The History Press, a UK-based history publisher.

Some samples:

#officer Clocks keeping bridge time now set back to 11.3p.m. This has extended the third watch by 29 minutes.

#passenger Standing at the front of the ship all I can see ahead is a horizon of water. I look forward to seeing New York.

#crew Clocks have once again been set back on the bridge, now to 3.30a.m. My watch has been extended by 30 minutes.
So yeah, I’m following @TitanicRealTime – at least until 15 April… =)
