Event Streams posts
Traditionally, media consumption such as podcasts, entertainment, shopping, and events have been passive experiences. However, over the past year, we’ve seen a shift to more interactive experiences with the rise of platforms like Clubhouse and TikTok. Consumers are now looking for immersive experiences where they can interact, be part of the conversation, be watched, and be listened to. Learn about the benefits of interactive live streaming and get tips on how to use it.
However, creating these types of experiences is not straightforward. If developers were to solve this themselves today, it would take months to build out the infrastructure needed to support their livestream applications globally. That left us thinking — how can we bring these interactive live streaming capabilities to developers in a simple and painless way? We built Twilio Live!
Why Twilio Live?
Twilio Live gives developers the tools to build immersive experiences that can be directly …
The key to running a fleet of reliably connected IoT devices is having the right amount of insight, such as where SIMs are connecting, what networks are rejecting connections, and which SIMs are going rogue in terms of data usage. Without that, you are essentially building your business on hope, not knowledge—a risky proposition.
Performance insight is key
Super SIM is Twilio’s new cellular IoT connectivity platform, offering almost 400 worldwide cellular networks on one SIM. With Super SIM, one of the guiding principles of the product from day one was providing visibility into what’s happening “under the hood” when SIMs try to connect to networks. To help businesses grow and expand their IoT deployments, we created a reliable IoT SIM solution offering global reach, which allows companies to select exactly which networks their device should connect to in each country. So we built our own mobile network core—the …

One integration for all your Twilio data
We’re excited to announce that Event Streams has entered public beta. With the Event Streams API, you can use modern data streaming technology to consume unified streams of Twilio data directly into your infrastructure, so you can spend less time wrangling data and more time building with data.
Having the right data architecture is more crucial than ever
Data has always been the backbone of business. In order for your teams—whether operations, marketing, or support—to do their jobs effectively, they need to deeply understand how your customers interact with your organization. With the COVID-19 pandemic driving explosive digital growth in 2020 across all industries, organizations have more data than ever about their customers. Why is it so difficult to use this influx of data to improve your customer engagement experiences?
Developers everywhere, tasked with consolidating all of the touch points they have …
At SIGNAL 2020, we announced the Event Streams beta. Event Streams is an API that allows you to configure centralized streams of event data directly into your infrastructure—starting with Amazon Kinesis—so that your data is easily accessible, automatically interpretable and reliable for informed decision-making.
We are proud to announce that Event Streams now supports data delivery to a webhook sink type. This means that customers can access the same powerful features of Event Streams—a single integration point for all Twilio data, at-least once delivery with retries for 24 hours, unified data format with consistent metadata, and support for delivery to multiple sinks—regardless of the streaming infrastructure they may be using.
Why did we build a webhook sink?
We built the webhook sink type for customers who:
- Aren’t using any streaming solutions like AWS Kinesis. Such customers can now easily transition to Event Streams and reap its benefits without making architectural …
At the heart of customer engagement, Twilio is radically simplifying how developers can tap into every customer interaction sent or received on our platform with a new API: Event Streams.
With Event Streams, you can consume configurable, centralized streams of data (starting with Messaging, Voice, Super SIM, and TaskRouter events, with all events coming soon) into the system of your choice. At launch, we’re starting with Amazon Kinesis – with more sinks coming soon.
Why did we build Event Streams?
In the last 12 months, the Twilio Customer Engagement Platform has powered nearly one trillion human interactions across all major channels. Humans are generating a massive quantity of digital data — giving you the unprecedented opportunity to better understand and serve your customers.
However, reliably accessing and tying all of this data together to build a holistic view of what's happening is no small feat. The data that is …
