or charge $5/month for "premium membership" which includes sms notifications. See how many people switch to the other options.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I'm sure you're not the only one. Question is if all those $5s will cover those who still want the text.

And how many actually care enough to pay. Or maybe they're getting texts and telegrams and chrome notifications too and don't really need them all?

Why can't we just keep using GroupMe but without the links? I think it's pretty safe to assume that the primary demographic of people who rely on the texts are flip phone users, who anyways usually can't follow the link and would need to find a computer to visit the site.

Am I missing something?

I would think that most people that texting is the only option don't either have a browser and when they see a deal they are interested in they go to the computer to find it (meaning they dont need the links in the text either way). So if Groupme will work better with no links (which I have my doubts about but I BH moved all my chats to Remind so I don't really know) then maybe you just need to send out a PSA that the groupme option will only be a notification without links and if you have a smartphone switch to a more reliable option.

Although not sure how that will work with you IFTT
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

@BAHayman stripped the links from the text and it appears to be working again.
Texts with DansDeals.com, dans.deals, and bit.ly links were all blocked.

What's the difference?
Also, they were never the "normal" URLs in the first place.

Personal preference for me, looks more legit as well IMHO

I dislike all shortened links, it's less transparent of where I'm going.
Amazons new links also really annoy me

You can update the post now and tell people there wont be links so people don't choose it if other options work for for them

Also then maybe I can get a HT for it :P

What if we went back to the original of this method, that it comes from Twitter?
Was that part of Elons 3rd party API breaking spree? Or are those links blocked too?
