So, I just read Twilio's updated Terms of Service, and was glad to find this section. Well done, +twilio .  I accept. :-)

Reddit via text. Awesome.
 
While working as an intern/teaching assistant at Dev Bootcamp in Chicago, Isaac taught himself Python (in a day) and built a reddit parser to make browsing reddit headlines easy whether you’re on a smartphone or a feature phone with Twilio SMS.

Educating someone quickly when onboarding or even trying to figure out the potential scope of a project is difficult -- think these sorts of videos are useful? 
 
To help you get your short code program up and running as quickly as possible, we created the following tutorial to turn you into a short code messaging expert in under ten minutes.

This short code compliance tutorial covers all the requirements for short code advertisements, opt-in messages, and responses to the keywords HELP and STOP.
Twilio short codes are a powerful tool for reaching your users faster, enabling your app to send messages at a rate of 1,800 per minute. This high-throughput is

Some code from one of our developer evangelists!

Thought you guys might like this - +Paul Hallett  is one of our UK developer evangelists and I'm sure if you have any questions he'd be more than happy to answer them. Enjoy, gang!

"In this tutorial I’ll show you to build a Click to Call service, which with the advent of modern technologies such as Twilio Client and Pusher; we can create, complete with real-time updates, in less than a day."
Let’s be honest: traditional call centers have a terrible user experience. You see something interesting on a website that you want more information about. E

ok So I tried  a second 'recipe', i skipped up to chapter 11 "MMS". It seems the function file_get_contents_curl($url) does not work, because the URL in the MMS message contains a URL to the twilio api, and requesting that URL causes a server redirect to a location on cloud/content storage. The function as-is just downloads an xml file which describes the image.

The fix is to add curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

Then it will follow the redirect to the image on cloud storage.

Anyhow, I don't see how I can give a good review for this thing. I would think since there are like a dozen reviews and editors listed at the beginning of this book (and it's the second edition), that the code would actually work, but so far it's two fails out of two. I don't think it's an API update problem because the SMS API appears to be v2008 and MMS v2010.

Hopefully Michael J. Gibbs has a better experience. :)

Just wanted to say HI!  I've been using Twilio for about a year.  Most of my work is in a ASP.NET/C# environment.  My next project will be in JavaScript, then on Android.

I'm located in Orange County, Ca and would like to talk with others using Twilio.

Still weighing the value myself. Twilio is but a part of our offering to clients but it is much of the "sizzle" so we I have to weigh the cost of being out of the office for two days against what we can gain.

Hey all, we're always trying to improve our API Docs. Has there been anything you've seen in our Docs that can be better? Or maybe you've seen some cool stuff in other companies' docs that we could include? What do the best docs look like, in your opinion?

Date plans? Found a very cool use of SMS feature

We found a very cool use of Twilio in this website, 4daysout.com. The site allows you to plan a movie or dinner date, and sends the time and locations of the date to yourself and/or your partner.

Hi everyone, we're going to start being more active in this space. We wanted to hear from you: what would you like to see in this community? We can provide support, links to technical articles, etc.

We'd love to see things you've created with Twilio, or really anything you've created at all.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Hello Twilio,

I'm Hessel, Co-Founder of Telepatheye and based in the Netherlands.
We are developing a nice piece of software for Wearables.

And we have one of our concepts related to "sending messages"
Do you think sending messages from Glass or SmartWatches could work with Twilio?

We have read the blog post from +Jonathan Gottfried 
And think it can be done.

Can somebody help us with integration of Twilio in our Glassware?

Regards,
Hessel
