This means you simply have to send unlimited texts from a rolling set of numbers.
That means for the SMS prices on twilio, that someone could theoretically vote hundreds of times. ($1/phone number ~$0.01/text)
For fun sake let’s run through the numbers.
That means for every $1.39 you spend, you could vote 39 times.
For $10,000, an athlete can buy 280,566 votes via SMS.
Now let’s measure the same thing via twitter.
Let’s assume that $400 buys you 50,000 tweets.
This means that if you can scale up and scale down your bot net fast enough, that you have a lot of votes.
