    @TalkTalk A week ago last Friday, my TalkTalk internet connection went down for the day again... today problems with AOL email... again. From a customer point of view it's beyond frustrating. Then, as I was cut off again this morning, an AOL telephone rep told me AOL was not for business..

    @YardleyShooting AOL email isn't associated with TalkTalk, Mike. If you need help with an AOL email address please contact their support teams.

    So fed up with AOL/TalkTalk I've has so many problems with their services. Why should one waste one's life phoning their call centres and spending hours on the phone. It's intolerable. Sort your systems out. @AOL @AOLSupportHelp @AOLNews @AOL_inc @TalkTalk

    @JoolzDenby @RGod8855 @the5thColumnist @timberners_lee It's a pain to switch but remember these are the same people who we thought would never get off AOL. Give them credit. Give them something worth signing up for.

    @fgautier26 Francois Gautiers stupid comment about people(Hindus) who do not oppose Amir Khan playing Krishna's role in some two bit movie are abandoning their religion and embarrassing Islam. Coming from an author and an AoL teacher this was the funniest logic ever read.

    @steaks @anildash I didn't have AOL, so no. I can remember being pissed off that I couldn't access "exclusive AOL content" for some comics that I was reading in the UK. That's probably when I decided that walled gardens were bad.

    @AOLSupportHelp AOL chat rooms r not working well. Many people take hours before they can log on. Others get kicked off just as easy. Last few times i loged on the chat, the opening screen had windows in it but nothing on the windows, for several minutes.

    @thedangerface The Internet was always a public pool with a hefty amount of piss and shit... But in its infancy, only the children went into the deep end. The adults stayed in the shallows of AOL and CompuServe.

    mom's current email provider is AOL (was Verizon until an AOL takeover). currently mom can't send email at all and isn't getting everything sent to her. AOL doesn't provide any free support. mom is 85 & isn't going to pay for tech support.

    @ezraklein @mattyglesias Not all - for many young people FB is the new AOL. Flip the model and make it truly a public utility - share revenue with users (they are the product after all). In order to be paid users get verified as humans (solves the bot problem).

    Network Solutions is such crap. They've designed their interface to make it difficult to end services. What is "Site Lock" and why is my client paying for it? Why can't I end it easily? Such garbage. Shame on #NetworkSolutions. They're the AOL of domain registrars.
