The post on DDMS regarding DDMS notifications should probably also include the GroupMe app push notification option for the (large amount of) DDMS readers with smartphones but with a filter that doesn’t allow Telegram.
Yup, and then you don't have to deal with GroupMe's sporadic SMS delays
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Cross-posting in new thread, try it out if you're looking for SMS alerts.

Telegram alerts will likely be more reliable, but this should work if you want SMS.
Does anyone still have a link to the IFTT applet from the Beta instructions? I am trying to set it up for other accounts.

I would love the method that was done for Dan to receive semi instant messages?

 For now I'm using IFTTT for my other Twitter account that I follow.
  But I know there's a delays of a couple of minutes.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Thanks. Where'd you manage to dig that up? Either way, link is broken.

Creating a new applet is very easy:
1: Press create
2: Press the + next to THIS
3: Search for Twitter. Click New Tweet By specific user
4: Press the + next to THAT
5: Search Groupme
6: select Post a Message to a Group
7: Select the group of your choice
8: (optional:) remove all extras from the message box - to get as much of the tweet as possible.
All done!

Just curious what else needs to be done within a couple minutes?

Maybe @BAHayman will be willing to share his recipe.

Is this recent? Seems like timeline can be 3-20 minutes off from the post
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.
