Living languages are dynamic and English is no exception. Using "text" and its variants as a verb is relatively new, and just another example of how language adapts to change. Latin does not change because it is a dead language while living languages do. Therefore, "John texted Mary," stands as it correctly uses the transitive verb "texted".
