    @ms_defied @rcjhawk86 Blacks got their own AOL, OWN Businesses own this that and the other and now they want it ALL. All Judges are black w white Baliffs except for the left over midgets I've never watched. Every frame has a black in it like a 'white' gathering of 100 with one black couple there? GAG

    @TrueFactsStated Hillary used a private server to avoid FOIA requests - that was bad. Pence used AOL because he’s an out of touch dummy — still bad though because State IT couldn’t make backups. Pence was not a federal employee at the time, so different laws apply - but unethical in both cases.

    @AOLSupportHelp i am locked out of my acc & stressed. i emailed in on thursday- from my business email- with full details of the issue and the only response i got was a customer experience survey on friday. i understand from your bio that you can't really help with password/account issues ):

    if you have an aol email, i suggest just doing yourself a favor & deleting it. besides the fact that something's always wrong with the website, the customer service is extremely slow & unhelpful.

    @aparnark30 @zoom_us I'm talking to Zoom, but that really isn't a workable solution. I wonder if any other chat solutions still exist (Yahoo! Messenger, AOL Messenger, anything like that?)

    @AOLSupportHelp is there an issue logging into aol mail today? Keep getting “can’t connect to server.

    @STACEY_SCHAEKEN Where do all the digits go? Those poor little 0's and 1's. Do they hang out with aol & MySpace lost digits?

    @StewMcDizzy @avillanueva3rd @darrenrovell So you grew up in a time where social media wasn't, and AOL is dead so no proof there. Good for you, you beat the courts on circumstantial evidence not on innocence of never doing it...good job.

    @AOLSupportHelp Now Outlook and Android email app are sending and receiving. I just it's magic. I've done all that deleting and adding before when I've had this problem in the past, and it didn't help. I still think that @AOL is not acknowledging outages or other problems.

    @douglaskphoto @BGIradji @APompliano Yeah, um, no. BTC is too slow to transfer, controlled by four Chinese miners, and too expensive to use. It will be a nostalgia crypto, like AOL is to the current internet landscape. You'll be saying "Remember when we thought BTC was so cool?" and then you'll have a good chuckle.

    @verizon @VerizonSupport Why did you stick your internet customers with horrible @AOL email? Aol email outage - 2nd one this weekend. Washington, DC. Instead of addressing the outage, @aolmailhelp just says to check settings.

  • KSHamrick
    Karen Hamrick (@KSHamrick) reported

    @AOL @aolmail @aolmailhelp aol email outage - After my email was out for 12 hours yesterday, I finally got email service back, and not it's out again. Don't bother suggesting that I check settings--all my setting are current and correct. Washington, DC.

    Yeah - 'Dense' Pence used his personal AOL email account and got hacked. Duh. So Mike set up a new email account ... on AOL. What a fucking idiot!

    "Pfft. You've never heard of herpes?" She clicked her tongue. So innocent. "Hermes is a terrible name. He really should've picked a better one. So he like what, helps with stuff like aol or Yahoo?"

You were tagged in it before twitter ever existed (heck, even before AOL chatrooms). So you can't untag but are only able to reaffirm the originary urtag.

    @blazedgeek Hello again, "BlazedGeek"! I'm having trouble accessing the service. I've gotten a little angry and really upset my wife and my Jack Russel Terrier "Barry". I am a very even keeled guy and hate acting out in anger. I may mention this in my letter to AOL! -Lou

    @AlanPattersonMD @acog @ACOGAction @Bayer @AOL @AlanPattersonMD I would love to show you what has happened to me after having the #essure device implanted!! 37K other women with similar issues can tell you their horror stories!! Would you feel comfortable implanting your patients and watching them deteriorate and not know why

    @TheLoboLair @peaceseller Make a website with a trackable goal. 2 million dollars. Make it easy to donate and see the progress. Donating should be easy like GoFundMe. The lobo club site is terrible. Unmtickets site is terrible (1998 AOL level technology).

    @Gray_DM @RoyCalbeck @The_RunicKnight @unmundig @AcidOverlord Not blocked but I agree disagree. I just see this as nothing more then the same shit I have pushed back in whatever way I can. Allowing it to continue no matter what side does it just hurts everyone. I know for a fact the AOL chatroom logs and backups are long gone for my youth.

    @AOLSupportHelp I am a 20 years+ AOL customer. In all that time my router has not been upgraded. I am now losing internet connection several times a day. It's proving extremely annoying, causing more and more problems. How do I get a new router, or do I have to go to a new ISP?

    @AOL 2months since GDPR and after numerous emails to your customer service including passport and driving license copies you still can’t reactivate his account despite this being an error on your part #aolfail #scaredoldman #agistpolicy #badcustomerexperience

    @HuffPost Businesses go out of business ONE customer at a time! AOL was on top with “You’ve got mail” Now do they still exist? Lost all their business ONE customer at a time. Why would you fire him? He was probably the only black employee you had at the store. #HomeDepot

    Twitter is the AOL message boards of the new era. Just a lot of shit talk and little substance.

    @rortensie70 The only good thing about email moving to the cloud is I now get an inbox capacity that's not stuck in 1995. Other than that its slow as 1995 AOL.

    I will never get to walk into my grandparents' home to find my grandma trying to recover her forgotten AOL & Amazon passwords ever again. And that's something that's hard to accept. It's weird, but that was normal life. I'll never get normal life with her again. Or life at all.
