So, you loved the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. You've bought the plush toys. You're listening to the soundtrack as you read this. Chris Pratt is currently top of your dream date/best friend list. Rocket Raccoon pleasantly haunts your dreams.

But there's one question I still have for you:

Is there anything you're desperate to ask Groot?

Because if so, then boy howdy do we have some good news for you.

A valiant Twilio employee by the name of Ricky Robinett has created a way for you to text Groot - and for him to reply:

I mean, it's a chat bot, so you're not actually talking to Groot (but you already knew that, right?) but all the same - that's pretty epic work.

It's also completely unofficial, but since Guardians director James Gunn seems to approve, it seems like it's alright to be totally over-excited by it:

Want to give it a go for yourself? The number's (866) 740-4531.

And don't worry about it - you're welcome.

Now, let's all get back to whatever [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073)-themed geekery we were up to before this came into our lives.


What do you guys think? Are you going to text Groot?
