My Experience with Twilio
I signed up for a free Twilio account, which provided me with $15.50 of free credit to experiment with the product.
For $1/month, I hosted a phone number from which I can send/receive calls/texts by using the programming language of my choosing — I prefer Python.
I used API Explorer (Beta) to test the servers. This dashboard seems to be built using FastAPI, which by default, shows how to ping the API by "curl"ing in the terminal.
I clicked the "curl" dropdown in the upper-right corner, and Python is an option, but it didn't have any documentation. That's a bug I'd love to solve. 🙂
Instead, I used the built-in "Make A Request!" feature, and added the following parameters to send a message to my cell phone!
