Dan + Shay Join Texting Trend

Many celebrities, like Dan + Shay, have recently shared phone numbers that allow fans to send a message via text. Cole Swindell also lists a phone number in his Twitter bio for fans to engage with.

According to ENews Online, celebrities choose to sign up on a platform that gives them a phone number that their fans can engage with. Yes, you can text them, but no, you won’t be receiving a personal message back. Most of the responses are “canned” lines, ultimately resulting in the tech-bot asking for your email address. 

It has not been said if the duo’s joined this platform before issuing the tweet.
