Whats the problem with this?  A will is just a way to determine how you want your assets given out after you die.  Just because you changed your mind in a text doesn't change the fact that is how you wish for your assets to be divided.  You still have a right to determine where your own property goes.

Not likely.  Even in UPC states, the courts are reluctant to even allow wills that aren't in hardcopy.  If they're just on your computer somewhere, there's no real indication of permanency, nor any sign that you considered that your final version, rather than just a draft.  A text message would almost certainly fail.  It MAY be acceptable for a specific devise, but even then it would be a stretch.  Wills and estates are a phenomenally antiquated field of law, they're extremely resistant to change, they have a massive emphasis on formalism, and something like this goes in completely the opposite direction of pretty much everything else in the field.
