Build Your Following
Introducing a new feature for monthly donors: the ability to build a following. Followers will receive instant text alerts anytime you publish a new petition.
Today we're happy to announce a new feature for our monthly donors, one of many rolling out in the coming months to help our organizers drive impact: the ability to build your own following on Resistbot. For monthly donors giving any amount, you already have the ability to claim a username and use it to share your active campaigns.
Now we're adding a additional benefit to claiming a username: Anyone who texts go followed by your username will be prompted to follow you! There's also a brand new follow keyword that you can give out anytime regardless of having a currently active campaign. Anyone can text follow and then your username, and be notified instantly when your future petitions or vote drives are published.
For organizers who have done texting before or managed their own text lists, you know it's not cheap to do text blasts! But these petition and vote drive alert texts to your followers are free for our monthly donors. Resistbot is a non-profit organization that from day one has been on a mission to make resistance cheaper, and easier for individual activists and organizers. Now you have tools to drive letters to officials or get voters to the polls and you're only limited by your time and effort, there's no expensive software to buy, and set up is as easy as texting a friend.
More functionality, like new alert types and the ability to text your followers, will be added over the coming months. In the meantime please enjoy this new feature and thank you so much for being a monthly donor and keeping our mission of defending democracy and resisting injustice alive.
If you're not a monthly donor, become one! Text subscribe to the bot, however you use it today, and you'll unlock this and other subscriber-only features.
