AOL's Trending Like It's 1999: StockTwits.com

When presented against a chart of investor sentiment as measured on StockTwits, this price action isn't too surprising. Investors had been overwhelming bullish on the stock heading into yesterday's earnings report, and appear to have been blindsided by the numbers and guidance, resulting in an emotional reaction.

But all is not lost. There's still some possible bullish catalysts out there. At these prices, AOL may become more attractive for an acquisition:

Should get interesting over the next few weeks as investors continue to digest this move and its implications on the bigger picture for AOL and its place in Web 2.0.
