TEENAGE Twitter users believe that the events of September 11, as portrayed in movies World Trade Center and United 93, were fictional, it has emerged.
Close to a thousand teenagers, across the United States and the world, have tweeted messages like “OMG 9-11 was totally a thing… am I dumb for not knoing this?” and “Twin Towers movie not just a movie! #hadnoidea”.
Beauty therapist Helen Archer said: “I did wonder why there was so many films about the same thing but there’s like hundreds of films on vampires and they’re not real. Are they?
“Does that mean all those shaky-camera documentary style films, like The Bourne Supremacy, actually happened?”
But many have claimed there is no evidence the events were not fictional. 1TrueRed tweeted: “#911real stupids need to check IMDB, its just a remake of Towering Inferno made in 1970s”. The tweet received 1,876 retweets.
The lack of any record of September 11 on Twitter timelines or Facebook pages has also been cited as evidence that the terrorist attacks never happened.
Student Stephen Malley said: “So if 9-11 is real, what else is? You’re not telling me Pearl Harbor actually happened, for fuck’s sake. I saw that movie and there’s just no way.
“I’m not into those history films anyway. I prefer true-life horror stories like Paranormal Activity. You know that’s actually based on a girl I went to school with?”
