And you'll still need someone to manually send an sms for each blog post
Next option!
There's many such free sites, but don't know off hand!

@Dan should threaten Twitter to take his followers to a competitor. You'll see how fast they reinstate SMS!

If you have Whatsapp, can't you download Twitter, Telegram, or use browser notifications?
i have WA, my filter wonít allow twitter, and Telegram I donít wanto have. (Unless this will be my only option to follow you).
Browser notifications works only if my browser is open to that page? I need to have Dansdeals.com open on my browser all the time?

On desktop you do not need to be on the site to get the notification. As long as chrome is open you'll get a popup for each ddms post.
IDK about mobile

there is 3 problems with group me.

1. sometimes sms get delayed
2. its a group so people keep replying

3. their API docs says that it cant be used for sms (you could still use a sms api to text the group me number)

Will they feel threatened with 88k followers? Probably not! ;)

No, once enabled you'll get a notification on your bar on top.

yup. Though to solve #1 people could install the groupme app on their phones.

Assuming were talking about people that don't have any apps have a simple talk and text phone.

 I would say over half of Dan's SMS Twitter followers don't have internet on their phone.

Well with that being said you need an option without any apps required!
   If in fact they're going to go ahead with that I'm sure, another company will start up and offer SMS.
Let the fun begin!

Thousands of people that have Whatsapp don't have a browser and won't/can't download those apps.

People who have WA can easily have GroupMe. But you are right.

We'd still need 1) someone to pay for it and 2) something to automatically send a text each time there's a new post. Zapier could do that but even the paid account would only check for new posts every 5 minutes. Unless someone knows of a way for wordpress to send a webhook with each new post.
