Groot Has A Cellphone And You Can Text Him Right Now
For deep answers to all of life's most existential questions.
Can’t get enough Guardians of the Galaxy? Wish you could hang out with them forever? Well now you can have a Guardian in your pocket 24/7, ready to advise you at a moment’s notice. Yep, a-holes – you can now text with Groot!
It’s simple: just send your most complex, philosophical queries to (866) 740-4531. Groot will receive them, and respond in no time at all. Perfect for when you’re feeling a bit lonely; for when you’re tempted to drunk text your ex; or for when you want to impress your friends with the fact that your cell plan includes interstellar texting.
Yes, I tried it. Yes, it’s pretty excellent.
This Rocket-approved bot was built by a Twilio employee, Ricky Robinett – and it seems like everyone wants the opportunity to chat with a Guardian of the Galaxy.
Working on a new SMS chatbot with some pretty amazing AI. Can’t wait for you all to see this. Launching this afternoon.

Groot may have a text message addiction. He’s now sent over 30,000 messages.

Honestly, this art by DepartedPro has never been more appropriate:
- The GOTG opening scene, re-created in Destiny
- James Gunn with an amazing Groot cosplayer
- That time Karen Gillan shaved her head on video
