Join the TBTT Pakistan SMS Group & help fight VAW

November 25, 2010 at 7:52 am 2 comments

Today marks the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence. Join the Take Back the Tech! team in spreading awareness regarding this issue & discussing how we can eradicate this menace from our society and the world.

From November 25 to December 10 Take Back The Tech! calls on women and men to take control of technology to protect the right to freedom of expression and information. Since it began in 2006, campaigners in more than 30 countries have used the internet, mobile phones, radio and more to document and fight violence against women.

Our friends at SMSAll have created the two premium groups for us (not case sensitive):
  • TBTT
  • TBTT-Discuss
The first group is a broadcast group and the second one is a discussion group. On the broadcast group, the TBTT Pakistan camp will send messages regarding the campaign to all those who opt-in and join our group (notifications etc) and on the second group, all members can send messages to the whole group (many-to-many conversation). So no spamming. If you are interested in this issue (and you should be), join hands with us now.
Here are some more details:
To join any group, just send the following:
  • join tbtt

or

  • join tbtt-discuss

to the following numbers:

Service numbers:
  • 5566
  • 03124117660-8 (For Mobilink users only)
To send a message on the groups, users have to include the group name with a “dot” -> “.” at the start of the message. For example, to send a message on the group TBTT, use the following syntax:
.tbtt <message>
