[liberationtech] bulk sms

My preferred method is using email to sms gateways.

On your side that becomes free (depending on how you send the emails).
Most providers have  a disclaimer of no guarantee of delivery via the
gateways, but I have yet to lose an email that way.

Is mission critical, I would just use a service like Twilio which will
charge per msg, but not hard to set-up.
