Twilio Goes Globally
Twilio has been providing matchless services in the communication field for many years. Now by making its API global it’s again empowering itself. Twilio has recently added thousands of carriers from all around the world. The number of its carriers has increased to over 1000 now. That’s why its API has become multilingual and now supports many languages like Russian, Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Arabic and hundreds of others. Due to this global change Twilio developers are now free to send or receive SMSs worldwide. This is another achievement by the Twilio team.
Earlier in May 2012 Twilio added some European countries to its communication network and made a count to 10 in total. Now this SMS API expansion is a great step to the success ahead. The product manager of Twilio “Patrick Malatack” says that this move is to reduce the geopolitical boundaries of telecommunication network for the developers, so that they could work with Twilio API like they work with the web. In this regard The Co founder and CEO of Twilio Jeff Lawson say:
“By adding support for multiple languages with the inclusion of the unicode character set, we are opening up opportunities for many locales to use Twilio SMS. It’s very gratifying to be able to ship this to our developers who have been requesting this functionality — now we can’t wait to see what they build.”
The SMS usefulness cannot be denied in any case because this has made advertisements and overall business communication very easy and handy. For making the SMS advertisement so successful Twilio has also added a lot for his developers. Many SMS and voice applications have been developed by using Twilio API in them. This globalization of the API will ultimately benefit its developers and make their applications to communicate all over the world.
