Mike Pence's choice of AOL earns laughs

Vice President Mike Pence is using AOL, the service you've tried to get your mom to stop using for years.

There was a time when roughly half of U.S. homes with internet access got online through America Online, according to The Atlantic. Those days are long gone. With the fall of dial-up service (it does still exist), many people chose different services for email, including Gmail and accounts through cable internet providers. AOL, as America Online has been known as since 2006, has shifted the majority of its focus to ad sales and creating content.

But some people still actively use an AOL account for email daily. And it appears Indiana's former governor is one of them. And he was hacked.

Once Twitter users heard this news, the jokes and AOL memories came quickly.

 

If you have an AOL account sitting out there and it's been five years since you logged in, go update your password.
