How Click to Call Works

Anthony Stevens, an active member of the Twilio developer community, has created several demos showing how to use Twilio in the past, and one of them contains a fantastic diagram of how click-to-call works:

It would take a whole other blog post to feature all that Anthony has done, but do check out his blog (there are code samples and a bunch of other good stuff there) and we look forward to bring him on a guest blogger in the future.

If you’re looking for a quick click-to-call solution, give Magic Call Button a try.  If you’re looking to build you own, come discover Twilio and what you can create with our telephony API!  Congratulations to Victoria and the whole team at Tradewinds for getting this launched.
