Klein Short Message Service (SMS) text messaging has become a ubiquitous form of communication for people over the last decade. Consequently, marketers and advertisers who are continuously refining their processes to more successfully connect with current and prospective consumers have gravitated to the medium in droves. Oftentimes, however, they do so without regard for the nuanced and particular regulations that govern SMS text message marketing. https://www.mondaq.com/unitedstates/advertising-marketing-branding/1097530/sms-text-messaging-and-the-tcpa-?email_access=on

Really, we need a little break. The top topics for civic discussion right now are the pandemic, climate change and collapsing infrastructure. It's summer, but baseball games keep getting postponed when somebody tests positive for the coronavirus. Broadway is all but closed. There's nothing much on TV except the Olympics, and the Olympics are kind of depressing. So let's complain about - robocalls! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/07/28/opinion/the-robocall-rebellion.html
