We’re excited to announce today that the Twilio Status Page is unveiling a new design and vastly enhanced functionality!
Every month, thousands of customers rely on Twilio’s status page to monitor the current health of our products and services. Our newly redesigned Status Page continues to deliver on our commitment to provide radical transparency to customers like you who trust us with their business-critical communications.
When things don’t work as expected, our customers value simple and actionable indicators and alerts which convey an incident’s impact to them. Our old status page, while providing high levels of transparency, often forced customers to separate signal from noise. Without the ability to create fine-grained filters for products and regions you care about, our alerts had become too noisy.
We’re listening. We took your invaluable feedback to heart, and are proud to share our new status page design today.
What has changed with our …

With Twilio Studio, software developers and cross-functional teams can collaborate to build a variety of engagement solutions, such as interactive voice response (IVR) systems, conversational messaging bots, or notification workflows in minutes instead of weeks.

When Twilio started, our mission was to bring the flexibility of software to the stodgy and inflexible world of communication. Our APIs enabled developers to make phone calls and to send text messages in a way they never could before.
As developers brought innovative Twilio-powered applications to market, we started to see patterns — places developers got stuck and common challenges they were having. So we started building tools like Copilot to effectively deliver messages, and Insights to understand how your phone calls perform in real-time.
And as developers brought even MORE innovative applications to market, we again saw developers repeating design application patterns and boilerplate functionality that was important for their application, but not core to their business. Problems such as two factor authentication or managing a customer’s communication preferences.
For many of these problems, we found ourselves asking “Why isn’t that an API?”. So we began wrapping up …
Imagine you’re standing on the corner in the rain, texting your driver. If that text message takes 2 minutes to arrive, that would feel like an eternity. Now imagine your credit card company texts you, reminding you that your bill is due tomorrow. You’re not waiting in the rain for that alert. It doesn’t matter if it arrives at 1:30pm or 1:32pm.
As you can see, not all text messages are the same. Different types of messages have different requirements for deliverability, capabilities, latency, and cost. Twilio’s “Super Network” is our software layer that interconnects with telecom networks around the world. We continually analyze data to optimize the quality and cost of communications that flow through the Twilio platform. In other words, this is how Twilio properly routes both your run-of-the-mill credit card bill reminder and that urgent text from your driver while you’re waiting in the rain. The more …
