Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahamtullahi wa barakatuhu,

For Nikah to be valid, it is essential that the Ijaab and Qabul are done in the presence of two male witnesses, or one male and two females.

If you merely typed out the Ijaab and Qabul, the Nikah will not be valid. It does not matter if that message was then shown to others.
