The first thought we had when we heard AOL Instant Messenger was shutting down? RIP, AIM ― and RIP to all the embarrassing screennames of our youth, too. 

For those of us who grew up with it, the ~iconic~ chat service provided an outlet to establish and try on new identities via screennames. And those screennames really said a lot about you: emokidlovesjen89 indicated that you were super emo, dating Jen...and born in 1989. (Really, what more did people need to know?)

As a tribute to AIM shuttering, people on Twitter shared their most hilarious screennames from years past. (FYI, AOL is now part of Oath, which owns HuffPost.)
