SMS used as Propaganda

Forbes says

Thailand’s military junta has resorted to sending text messages to mobile phones in the kingdom to try to persuade people not to join protest rallies, a spokesman said.

‘Thai people should adhere to the king’s speech, be calm … reasonable and respect the laws,’ said one message signed by the Council for National Security (CNS), as the junta calls itself.

Another message read: ‘The army chief and the junta leader want to see the country remain in peace and reach reconciliation. We request every party involved to do their best job and adhere to peaceful guidelines.’

Guess Taksin shouldn’t have sold the phone company.
