Thank you for this Twilio news and Barack Obama short biography. It's incredible that a former president supports such an application. As far as I know, Twilio allows software developers to programmatically make and receive phone calls, send and receive text messages, and perform other communication functions using the web services API. Twilio was founded in 2008 by Jeff Lawson, Evan Cook, and John Woolthouses and was originally based in Seattle, Washington, and San Francisco, California. I managed to find out this information after watching a couple of videos on YouTube about the history of the creation of this program. There you can find about ten such videos and almost all of them have about 24 thousand views! I'm sure this is because their authors often resort to using to buy views.
