Up/Down notifications via slack?

Would you please set up an integration to send Up/Down notifications via slack? When a site is down to be able to prefix the notification with @channel. When the site is up, no need for the urgency. And those two notices, up/down, is really all that needs to go to slack.

    You can do this now with no changes by WPMU DEV. Change your email notification to go to a dedicated user ID. Then process inbound mail items to Slack via Zapier, IFTTT, or custom code.

    You can also use the email blog posting feature built-in to WordPress. Use the email address exposed by that feature so that notices get saved as a Post item with a specific category or tag that doesn't show up in your live site or archives. Then have a cron process periodically loop to retrieve posts of that type to send to Slack. Or the posts can be available via a RSS or ATOM feed which then get posted to Slack.

    There are many ways to skin this kitty with existing tools.
