MSN messenger was garbage, it just came at a time when the next best alternative was an SMS for 10p for 60 characters. It killed itself by allowing users to sign in but appear offline. Soon everyone did that and nobody knew who was online so you’d just message someone in the hope they were online. The real messenger king was BBM, in that brief period in the mid 2000s when blackberries were the fruit of choice before Apple took over.
