    Introducing Group Texting with Twilio Conversations GroupTextinginTwilioConversations

    Over the years, we’ve seen a shift from a “like” and “follow” model of doing business to a preference for two-way or secure group conversations. We’ve also learned that not every conversation is one-to-one and can often involve an additional person, like a partner or colleague.
