And they killed it from Tumblr.
AIM tapped into new digital technologies and ignited a cultural shift, but the way in which we communicate with each other has profoundly changed. As a result weâ€™ve made the decision that we will be discontinuing AIM effective December 15, 2017. We are more excited than ever to continue building the next generation of iconic brands and life-changing products for users around the world.
Kind of insane to pay way too much money for something, to just turn around and kill it.
All I know is that whatever they think they are going to do, it’ll never have the reach and recognition as AIM.Â Maybe there is reverse engineered servers, like Escargot for MSN.
