Tweets from the Titanic

Sunday, April 15th, 2012 marks the 100 year anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. People are commemorating the occasion in all kinds of ways.


One of the more interesting methods is being used by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. It will be using Twitter to broadcast the Titanic's original wireless transmissions.


When the Titanic was built, it was the most modern vessel of its kind. It included an advanced wireless telegraph machine.


By following #TitanicMMA on Twitter today, you'll be able to read the exact messages read by operators in 1912 as they were received. Tweets will begin at 11:55 p.m. Newfoundland Standard Time.
