Is there any way to create a group to send non-multi-media texts in a way that no one can respond and that they can only follow? Also that I can add them and they don't have to themselves sign up to follow?

Look into Remind. It was built for schools, but it might work for what you have in mind.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Would the people receiving the text messages be able to respond back? I don't want that..

You can disable that.

Teachers can choose whether they want to receive messages in their settings. Other class owners like parents or students can't change the message settings, two-way conversations is the only option.

It's a free website / app. Sign up and test it out.

This is like a text which is going to be sent whether you like it or not!
 And no way to exit? Or is there a way to disable the notifications and leave this group text?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Are there any alternatives to GroupMe, multiple people on different groups, phones, service, have been having issues with receiving texts.. any ideas would be appreciated.
