Twilio

  • Official Website: https://twilio.com
  • Icon Support: No
  • Message Format: Text
  • Message Limit: 140 Characters per message

Account Setup#

To use Twilio, you will need to acquire your Account SID and Auth Token. Both of these are accessible via the Twilio Dashboard.

You'll need to have a number defined as an Active Number (from your dashboard here). This will become your {FromPhoneNo} when identifying the details below.

Receipe#

Valid receipes are as follows:

  • twilio://{AccountSID}:{AuthToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/{PhoneNo}
  • twilio://{AccountSID}:{AuthToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/{PhoneNo1}/{PhoneNo2}/{PhoneNoN}

If no ToPhoneNo is specified, then the FromPhoneNo will be messaged instead; hence the following is a valid URL:

  • twilio://{AccountSID}:{AuthToken}@{FromPhoneNo}/

Short Codes are also supported but require at least 1 Target PhoneNo

  • twilio://{AccountSID}:{AuthToken}@{ShortCode}/{PhoneNo}
  • twilio://{AccountSID}:{AuthToken}@{ShortCode}/{PhoneNo1}/{PhoneNo2}/{PhoneNoN}
