'The real' Stephen Colbert to be exposed on late night

Who is the 'real' Stephen Colbert? Many fans have been asking that question after CBS confirmed Thursday that Colbert replaced David Letterman as host of 'The Late Show' in 2015.

The conservative character earned his fame for the past eight years on Comedy Central's 'The Colbert Report' and before that 'The Daily Show'.

"What you're going to get is the real Stephen Colbert," explained CBS CEO Leslie Moonves in a statement. "He said it's time to do something different. If he's going to be on our air for 20 years, as we all hope, it's not humanly possible to keep that character going."

Fellow late-night hosts congratulated Colbert on Twitter, including Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers.

@JimmyFallon: I'd like to welcome the great @StephenAtHome to network late night and also congratulate him on his new name: Jimmy Colbert.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Rolling Stone cover tattoo needs history lesson

The latest Rolling Stone cover features 'Veep' star Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a fake tattoo of what appears to be the U.S. Constitution covering her back. The magazine included John Hancock's signature at the bottom.

There is one problem. John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence.

As you can imagine, cries for historical accuracy have flooded social media and eventually reached Rolling Stone's publisher. Wenner Media publicity director Melissa Bruno joked to The New York Daily News, "The Declaration of Independence is on the other side, but we couldn't fit in all the signatures."

The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia joined in on the fun.

@ConstitutionCtr: as VP, please tell constituents Hancock didn't sign Constitution http://ow.ly/i/5bG9R 

Titanic sinking played out in real time on Twitter

A twitter account set up by the History Press details the doomed voyage from the perspective of the captain, crew members, engineers, officers, first, second and third class passengers.

Day-by-day, @TitanicRealTime details the historical events leading up to April 15.

@TitanicRealTime: #passenger Barely slept last night. The beds were comfortable but the excitement is just too much!

After leaving Southhampton on April 10, 1912, the ship made two other stops before sailing west toward New York. On Friday morning, the ship was picking up its final passengers in Queenstown, Ireland.

@TitanicRealTime: #crew Passengers and mail all on board, we will soon start our preparations before we set off on the final leg…

It's interesting to see history unfold in such an innovative way. The RMS Titanic, which had been called an unsinkable ship, went down in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912, killing 1,502 people of the 2,224 onboard.
