    Monday marks the 101st anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. If you need something to do for the next few hours, you can follow @TitanicRealTime on Twitter as it live-tweets the last moments of the unfortunate voyage.

    Created last year by The History Press, TitanicRealTime’s first-person tweets put a distinctly personal spin on the disaster instead of just a historical one.

    If live tweets aren’t quite real enough for you, you’ll just have to wait until 2016 when the Titanic II, a full recreation of its predecessor, sets sail. What could possibly go wrong?
