As social media increasingly becomes a source of clutter, major labels are realizing that less than 8% of an audience may see any given post. Meanwhile 95%+ are guaranteed to open a text message, within the first hour of receiving it. That's why artists like Luke Hemmings, ROSIE, WALK THE MOON,and Travis Thompson are texting fans through Subtext.
