Cell-Phone Text-Messaging for Rallies
The power of text messaging on cell phones was
brought to my attention by an activist
who explained that the immigration demonstrations
in early 2006 occurred because of them.
Accessible to the Poor
Apparaently, the illegal immigrants do not have the
money, credit ratings, and means to purchase
or land-line phones,
but they can afford monthly cell phones like
the ones sold at MetroPC.
Furthermore, the cell phone is portable
making it ideal for organizing a rally.
The part I like about it is that the
message is on the phone, can be read
at any time, can be sent
back with a response, and the
response can be stored to be developed at
Practice is Needed
I am currently starting to learn how to use
text-messages. I am finding it takes practice.
