Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton encourage supporters at their events and visitors to their campaign sites to sign up to receive text messages.
“Trump uses a short code – 88022 - that is memorable, Hillary's is harder to remember – 27246 – which spells out HRCGO,” said Cliff Holsenbeck, director of product management, Common Short Code Registry, iconectiv.
Through a strategic partnership with CTIA, iconectiv is the exclusive provider of the Common Short Codes Registry service for the U.S. market.
Trump asks you to text Trump to the shortcode whereas Clinton asks for your phone number and email address in order to begin receiving messages.
