59 Days of Code Uses Twilio to Vote For a Winner

When Irma from 59 Days of Code contacted us to find out if we’d help them with a voting app for their competition, we were thrilled!  With Twilio SMS, they were able to build a simple custom text message voting application so that thousands of people could weigh in on who they thought should be the winner.  Votes were texted to a Twilio number, with a maximum of 2 votes per Caller ID.

Twilio is also offering $133.70 of Twilio developer credit to anyone who participated in the competition and would like to integrate Twilio into their project.  Please contact help@twilio.com to claim yours!

What is 59 Days of Code?
