Today's issue of the Washington Post covered the ways that younger people are using text messaging. The Washington Post text messaging article profiles Love, an area nightclub, and Club Texting client:
Some local nightclubs already have figured out how to use text messaging to reach their young partygoers with instant news about upcoming entertainment. Ti' Jean Beezer, assistant to Love owner Marc Barnes, said he often uses the Web site clubtexting.com, which is designed to help nightclubs promote their events through text messaging. Beezer said he gets cellphone numbers from patrons and regularly enters them onto a database at the site. He can type one message and reach 1,000 patrons at once.
"You don't have to worry about doing it yourself, texting one by one, thousands of people," Beezer said. "It's very effective."
