Yes, it’s true—Santa Claus has officially text enabled his wish list hotline this Christmas season. With historically low numbers of handwritten letters showing up at the North Pole, he knew he had to do something different. It was clear that kids are texting and that Zipwhip was the high throughput service provider that could support the volume of wish list texts he expected to roll in. Without hesitation, our team was ready to assist him in his quest to lift the Christmas Spirit this holiday season.
Santa’s operation consists of highly trained Christmas wish list elves using Zipwhip’s multi-user texting software. Santa is part of every response as he simultaneously is checking his Naughty or Nice list twice. The first reply message even includes a short video of the man himself spreading holiday cheer.
Many of the inbound texts also include picture messages of items on their wish list and handwritten notes from children (shown below).
Try it now. Simply send a text to 844-YO-SANTA (844-967-2682) to start a conversation with Santa. Depending on the time of day, you may receive an automated text reply if he’s taking a nap or snacking on some cookies.
