We got to, someone that has some cloud in the blogging field like Dan/JJ has a good shot!
It's probably faster to find someone who can write a program to check rss feeds every minute or so and send a text message with any new posts.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

That's what my suggestion would be now that SMS is down! We can't wait a week to get it back up and running!

 There's many free programs out there which allows people to be added or you write subscribe and receive text messages from them.
 Every company has that feature where you subscribe to them and then send out tweets or rather a text.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If you have Whatsapp, can't you download Twitter, Telegram, or use browser notifications?

The one I've tried is IFTTT (I get email notifications from them but it's the same technology) the problem is that it only checks the rss feed every 15 minutes and often that's too late for some deals :)

I don't know if that's an issue with rss in general or if it's an ifttt thing, though.

Don't know how it worked till now?
Didn't Dan manually send out the tweets?
Or did he run a program to tweet the deal that was added to the MS?

Email is not an option! We need texting to work!
   And I feel bad for Dan, all those subscribers who want to follow will need to re subscribe to his Deals!
   I'm sure the MS will not be receiving the same traffic as it did now that SMS is down!
  Or maybe even more traffic being that SMS is down and people don't want to miss a deal! Lol

IFTTT can do texting too, check it out ifttt.com
At least until there's a better way you can get notified every 15 minutes

I could write a script to pull from twitter API and send sms... but sms API are not free..

maybe i could write a service for sms users.. for a minimal monthly fee.

How does any store do the texting?
  Take hatbox for example you subscribe to their texts and receive a text each time they send a deal..

   Now you don't want to try one out and then see it doesn't work and make all your subscribers re-subscribe.

Can you set up a broadcast only groupme?
And you'll still need someone to manually send an sms for each blog post
