    Simultaneously best and worst - 15-yr-old me got all the "Growing Pains” era Leonardo DiCaprio comparisons. I made the mistake of putting that in my AOL profile. Turned into a whole “send me your picture” debacle in the 15-yr-old AIM demo. Had to temporarily suspend my profile.

    @heyyguido On the AOL chat room, I was 12 or 13 and talking to men over the ago of 25, didn’t realize until later on how creepy that was. I just wanted people to talk to. Numerous times they would try to meet up with me. Thank god I never did.

    @HuffPost Arianna Huffington ran for governor of California against Arnold Schwarzenegger and dropped out due to a lack of support. A few years later she founded the Huffington Post then sold it to AOL for $315 million. Forbes named her one of the most influential women in media in 2009.

    @AOLSupportHelp I drafted an email & tried to send it, got an error message saying it was experiencing problems sending right now. Tried to save it in drafts & got a message saying having a problem can’t save drafts right now & it deleted the draft that I had since yesterday.

    @AOL @aolmail I am not receiving an email from a particular email address. I have contacted the person who has a sent and received log on the email sent to me. However, it doesn’t reach my inbox. Are you able to help please.

    The determination was that "unpopular kids lie for attention" despite the fact I never told anyone other than my sister after she made me tell her, despite physical evidence, despite countless saved messages (threats) he would send me on AOL. So my mom went to the police.

    @joshelman maybe AIM? starts as a simple messaging addon tool for AOL users only - gets released standalone, big network effects, lots of development on top of the product

    @sgtwheels @stopthenutjob Kavanough graduated in 1987, making him a Freshman in 1983. Like HELLO....Our Macs & Apple II computers didn't even send email. AOL didn't even exist until the 1990's. What ******** are they talking chains in 1983 between students? Nope, Never, Not Possible, No way

    @JasonSamfield @wht353 @RightOnQ3 @jack Dude, that's part of Cybers claim that the court ruled against in summary. They said they agreed online wasn't a traditional public square and it didn't matter the content or what AOL blocked. That's it's not a 1A issue. They cited Marsh and Tate and lost.

  • Wond3rMuffin
    Wond3rMuffin (@Wond3rMuffin) reported

    @JasonSamfield @wht353 @RightOnQ3 @jack No it's not. People have to accept receipt of your content. That includes searching on site. The summary judgement said AOL can block anyone they want on their network and it's not a 1A violation; their site, their servers (their property) plus alternatives exist.

    @AutoMattock I remember my first chat experience was around 1996 through this online service called Wow! which was ran under Compuserve. Eventually that got phased out by AOL when they bought Compuserve

    @DeanIrving2 @grw1177 @Tazman9Tazman I've been in SRPT for maybe 6-7 yrs, I've never wanted to look back to remember. I feel fatigued at 6-7 yrs, I can't imagine what 16 years would feel like. I do remember Amazon at $15(think it was $15), Global Crossing, AOL, etc and many others that I was going to retire on.

    @Bhramma5 @CryptoVanessa @justinsuntron @VitalikButerin IMO, #eth needs to do a better job at adapting to the market. Future startups will choose cheaper, better, faster to enhance the customer experience and their bottom line. AOL was the first and a pioneer once, they didn't adapt and they are dead.

    WARNING: there is a site on AOL that has a news piece, which is not exactly news (but what would you expect) called Boredom Therapy. It was started on Facebook by some cretin but is being displayed as actual news. It is crap and today the worst junk yet. I hope someone sues them

    @MagsVisaggs The funniest thing about EVS calling ppl bullies is that I knew him online in the mid to late 90s and he was a bully back then, too. He spent a lot of time in Wizard chat on AOL and was rude and mean to everyone but Wizard staff.

    I remember when social media was to the point. You was never on AOL or MySpace for over a couple of hours. Now, we’re in a virtual social setting. People forget you exist if you’re not frequently using a some sort of social media platform.
