For example, you can post Reading the Nigeria Technology Guide to 8900. Your status message will be active for 30 days or until you cancel it. Anybody with your mobile number can dot (the preferred jargon for the process of requesting for a DotMe user’s update) you to access your status. To follow an Etisalat DotMe user, you have to dot them first by texting a dot (full stop) to their Etisalat number.
