AOL re-organised its AIM team this morning, firing at least three, sources close to the company tell us.Says one source, “Change is hard but AIM has been losing and needed [it].”

AIM’s new development leaders will be Chris Wetherell and Jason Shellen, who joined AOL when it acquired their startup Thing Labs in September.

At our Ignition conference last week, AOL icon Steve Case says AIM should have become Skype.
