Twilio


The twilio component enables the sending of notifications via SMS and the creation of calls with Twilio.

  • account_sid (Required): Your Twilio Account SID which can be found in your console. It starts with the letters AC.
  • auth_token (Required): Your Twilio Account SID which can be found in your console. It should be directly under where you found the account_sid.
