Is Paying to Message Strangers a New Texting Business?

The New York Times-Cellphone carriers are making less money from text messages thanks to free messaging services offered by Facebook, Apple and other tech companies. (Facebook, Web)

According to me its completely a Business and a clever step to make more and more profit.

It's interesting, it is indeed a new Business because it opens the possibilities to so many things..

For one it makes your text message really important, because the recipient has to think what is so important this person felt the need to pay a dollar to send me this message.. - Kind of adds your text message to the top of the list.

(Also since your only allowed to do 20 it kind of eliminates spam to about 90% because a spammer would never deal with a restriction number that is so low.. would not be worth their time)

At first you probably think, nah this service is a bust, but when you think about it, there are a lot of people willing to pay and therefore a lot of people who would use this..
