On 19 November, Riverdale's Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper) reveals her phone number to fans to stay in touch and communicate with them.
Unfortunately, the number can only be used by US and Canadian numbers at the moment, although Lili's Instagram post implies that international numbers could be considered in the future.
In an Instagram post, Lili writes:
I "Text me! 310-356-9288 🌸 thank you to all of the fans who have given me so much joy and love over the years. Send me a message 📱 (US and CANADIAN numbers only at the moment)"
Along with the Instagram post is a video where Lili explains in more detail about her decision to share the number.
I “Hi, everyone. I wanted to share that I created a phone number specifically for my lovely fans to use in order to stay in contact with me and to communicate with me directly. I thought it would be really nice to have a community basically for all of my fanbase who want to stay in touch with me and wants to hear from me every now and then if you're so inclined.”
She continues to say that she created the number specifically for fans to “stay in contact" with her and to be able to "communicate with [her] directly.” Lili even jokes that she could even send them “memes” if they wanted her to.
I “And text me and I'll have your number and we can stay in touch in this very weird world. And you know, I can send you memes if you want."
Lili then thanks fans for supporting her book, Swimming Lessons: Poems that was released in September earlier this year. She reveals that this is her way of “saying thank you".
I "Thanks guys, for being so amazing and especially for supporting my book these past two months, it's been really the world to me so this is hopefully my way of saying thank you and staying in touch with all of you guys. Love you.”
Swimming Lessons: Poems features around 100 poems that Lili wrote over five years with themes ranging from love to hope. Lili revealed to Vogue that even now, she is still writing poems in between shooting for Riverdale.
