Everyone is talking about the old days of dial up internet and it's so funny
When you actually had to plug in a cable to get internet and for ages all it did was make those weird noises along with a *ding ding ding* halfway through.
And you also couldn't use the phone while doing so?
Ah, those were the days.
Well, it's been 30 years since the internet first became a thing and people on Twitter are taking a look back through memory lane. It's actually gas looking back at how far we've come from sitting in the hall, beside the phone, waiting on it to connect...
Can I be so real? Sometimes, I often find myself missing the ol’ dial-up days of the internet. When MTV was truly the shiiid, and only music and new cds were the social outlet.

And let’s be clear - I grew up when you had to hope someone wasn’t on the phone to dial in to the internet and the Nokia was a brick phone that had ONE game, it was called Snake. I am pretty sure if #FacebookDown was Natural Selection this world would be a better place.

We had dial-up until I was like 12 and I remember distinctly one time my mom unplugging the internet cable because I had secretly been playing Runescape up in my room on the laptop me and my brother shared.

For #Web30 we're sharing our earliest memories of the internet. The first website I visited was the offical TY beanie babies website. Back when collecting them all was my number 1 priority. pic.twitter.com/0xLNWuyJja

Ahh the good old days of dial-up and having to use the house phoneline to get on the Internet.
