    @arlenparsa I wish people would get a grip... AOL tried it 25-30 years ago with the word “breasts”. AI is never gonna even be smart enough to distinguish between someone pointing out a problem and someone promoting it. And off platform, people will still think it. Tech can’t fix people.

    @DissidentDare @VeinyFartBoner @RegularRon @GodEmperorLewd @TabbyBoomBoom @Uniblonder_ Just realized AOL chat rooms were a fed honeypot. Damn. 🤔

  • ChrisBianco8 Chris Bianco (@ChrisBianco8) reported

    @katelizabeth33 Kat if you still have AOL and you’re using that for your ig or anyother social media I don’t even feel bad because they have no web security, you being hacked would’ve never happened if u had a gmail and a strong password.

  • THTB614 Jaded Sakura Geist (@THTB614) reported

    @XanozIchimonji Just about anything I was into in the 90s...Pokemon, the video games at the time, Ape Escape soundtrack, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, AOL...what wonderful times.

    @birdieglad @AOL @Ireland0828 @abronxchick @veterans_i @pannlewis44 @KelliSmith15 @smileyt22 GOOD!!!! He should never get out of jail!

  • andymcl92 Andrew McLaren (@andymcl92) reported

    @RotoPenguin @tomscott Perhaps the trucks used to transport the black hole data. Bandwidth was great, but the ping was almost as bad as AOL!

  • davywtf davy (@davywtf) reported

    We never did figure out how AOL fit so many hours of the internet onto those CDs though

  • ob_inn OB’s Gee Why Inn (@ob_inn) reported

    Slimy Eagles grabbed our guy at 22. We temporarily lost our dial up service—damn AOL went down again—but we’re happy to get Alabama State lineman Tytus Howard. Your first night is on us, albeit you must be out by 9am because that’s when the exterminator is coming.

  • xoqtox1960 Carol (@xoqtox1960) reported

    @AOL There is no punishment good enough for those horrible so called parents.

  • ITBrydon B:\rydon (@ITBrydon) reported

    @BadassBowden One of my friends still uses AOL as his primary personal email. I give him crap for it relentlessly. I'm not his type though so we're good there 😂

  • BadassBowden Katelyn Bowden (@BadassBowden) reported

    Do not **** people if they have aol email accounts. You deserve better

  • DrJohnFrancis John Francis (@DrJohnFrancis) reported

    @TravisAllen02 We had no problem doing this at AOL TOS in the '90s. And yeah, confirming the correlation.

  • fohouttahere Duncan Macrae 🇨🇦 (@fohouttahere) reported

    @OaktownCogPsy Worth noting that Gmail only went to open signups in the US in 2007. Probably a *lot* of dead hotmail/yahoo/aol addresses in that bad boy.

  • MisspughT MissPugh_x (@MisspughT) reported

    Feel like Thirsty Thursday is in order after having a child in my class this morning puke all over the AOL and Maths No problem workbooks followed my another throwing a rubber at me for bants. #pgceproblems #edutwitter #loveitreally

  • jasonlynn1975 WWE/NXT/Acting/SW (@jasonlynn1975) reported

    @iamjondraper @lightning_kf Id buy into that. I was a ****** up ******** 20 years ago.. thank god only the telnet AOL, and BBSes were popular for socializing then... Ive grown in those years.. i went from ******** to "kinda an *******"

  • xoxo_gcolee GRAY (@xoxo_gcolee) reported

    Damn, @AOL deactivated my email (which it was old af) but it was hooked up to an account I had, and now I can’t get the security code so I’m locked out

  • pixilated_runt pixilate (@pixilated_runt) reported

    @SailentC @DoonMuck @BikeManStream @FrogTheSpy @MatthewSchell2 @SatisfactoryAF @Savergn Nah demos are just called games these days and cost full price, then you have to buy the dlc to complete the game. Oh, or it's only on a scammy ass launcher with more security issues than a DMV computer and less features than an AOL chatroom in 2001. **** anti-consumerism.

  • thexmasmiracle ZFTG (@thexmasmiracle) reported

    @cowboytexas @AOL Holy shit... But this line: "The cause of her death remains under investigation." Cause of death seems pretty ******* obvious.

  • Vader729067 John Ellis (@Vader729067) reported

    @davemeltzerWON IMO WCW would've lasted longer and might still be around if 1 they didnt have ridiculous contracts 2 Hogan didnt have creative control of his character 3 Nash wasnt booking in the last few years and 4 Russo was never hired for creative 5 AOL didnt buy Time Warner

  • Scotty2Chilly Scotters (@Scotty2Chilly) reported

    @TSNJR @TSNHammer Hey guys, Mike's Mapquest and AOL email account is down on his 386 so if you could search Alta Vista for a fix Mike would appreciate it. Pretty sure Saginaw is not in Michigan at all but need to confirm.

  • SherbuckAlex Alex Sherbuck (@SherbuckAlex) reported

    @michaelfolkson @bergealex4 This is kind of like saying "In the future, the Internet will be built on top of AOL and we will never upgrade AOL again" and it's 1995

    @StevrayFl AOL is so damn vulnerable, it’s the worst choice for official business of any kind. Speaking as someone that worked tech support for businesses.

  • columbiabuffett Murciélago 🦇 (@columbiabuffett) reported

    We've really gone from "Don't trust anyone you talk to on the internet" from the AOL days, to literally making money and doing business with people you've never met in person or know what they look like sometimes.

  • NoahWhey Paul (@NoahWhey) reported

  • mrs_schmidty Chelsea Schmidtlein (@mrs_schmidty) reported

    @AOL you guys seriously have the worst customer service. I have been trying to reset my password but because I’m not the initial person to set up the account, your rep basically said it sucks to be me. This is why I switched to Gmail.

  • AdamLovesFood Adam Levine (@AdamLovesFood) reported from Chantilly, Virginia

    5 Jobs I’ve had: 1. Intern / Mascot @ABC Kidzine on @AOL 2. Catering Staff at countless DC Caterers 3. Founder / Owner of JAM Productions and the Exchange VIPs 4. Sales/Service at @CustomInk 5. All things SEO @Appian

  • RevolutionBaby9 Melissa (@RevolutionBaby9) reported

    @AOLSupportHelp He was locked out and all his info was changed. I was able to finally (after many hours) get help from a person named Julia in your Spanish speaking department, she was very helpful, and all is ok now- but tbh your English speaking dept is extremely lacking

  • mercoglianos Sal Mercogliano (@mercoglianos) reported

    @DavidLarter The concept of the T-AOL by using an OSV is not practical. I can not see how it carries enough fuel or be able to stream a rig. The use of tugs and fuel barges are a quicker and cheaper solution.

Harold would never be so dumb. He receives his news via shortwave radio and a dialup internet connection through @AOL. We have an endless supply of 20 hour sample CD Roms. You will never stop us! Unless Harold’s mom picks up the phone again.

  • TheMarieGibbons Marie Gibbons (@TheMarieGibbons) reported

    A few days ago I followed a link to a local true crime podcast & now I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole of online amateur detective sites. It’s a thing. I haven’t been this shook since the early 90s when I went in an AOL chat and discovered what bears4bears meant.

    @clovis1931 @LisaSmith4680 @AOL Resigning would be the honorable choice, but no he’d rather disenfranchise thousands of voters in order to virtue signal

  • j_ro Jason Rosenbaum (@j_ro) reported

    @AOLSupportHelp sorry, let me revise that. We are sending Quoted-Printable, but it's not breaking links in other email systems (like gmail). However, links are broken at verizon recipients. We're not sure why.
