Going Nuclear: Broadcast Text Messaging
Fascinating. People for the American Way is deploying an experimental technology for the filibuster showdown in the U.S. Senate: braodcast text messaging.
They're asking their supporters to disclose their cell phone numbers, and promising to instantly blast out a text message when Senator Bill Frist invokes the "nuclear option" on the filibuster.
With the Nuclear Option’s timing in Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist’s hands, there won’t be enough warning to send out an email alert the moment he drops the bomb on the Senate. But we can deliver a text message straight to your mobile that embeds a Senate phone number based on your state.
