Twilio’s Programmable SMS API helps you add robust messaging capabilities to your applications.

Using this REST API, you can send and receive SMS messages, track the delivery of sent messages, Schedule SMS messages to send at a later time, and retrieve and modify message history.

Want more general information on Twilio and SMS? See our Programmable SMS overview and the SMS API pricing page.

Base URL

All URLs referenced in the API documentation have the following base:

The API is served over HTTPS. To ensure data privacy, unencrypted HTTP is not supported.

You can control your connectivity into Twilio’s platform by including your specific edge location in the subdomain. This will allow you to bring Twilio’s public or private network connectivity closer to your applications for improved performance.

For instance, customers with infrastructure in Germany can make use of the frankfurt edge location by using this base URL:

If you have a private connection through Interconnect in Germany, you can make use of the frankfurt-ix edge location by using this base URL:

SMS API authentication

HTTP requests to the API are protected with HTTP Basic authentication. To learn more about how Twilio handles authentication, please refer to our security documentation.

In short, you will use your Twilio Account SID as the username and your Auth Token as the password for HTTP Basic authentication with Twilio.

curl -G \

You can find your Account SID and Auth Token in the Console.

To learn more about authentication and interaction with the Twilio REST API, check out our documentation for requests to the API and Twilio’s response.

Send messages with the SMS API

Twilio will now monitor messages to prevent content violating our Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). This helps to ensure and support Twilio Messaging as a trustworthy, high engagement channel and will not slow down the delivery of messages.

If a message you send has violated the AUP, it will be returned and you will receive an error code which identifies the necessary changes you need to make sending it again.

Twilio’s SMS API helps you send and manage messages programmatically:

You can also leverage the REST API to query metadata and manage your messages:

You’ll be able to find all relevant SMS API resources in the API Reference folder in the navigation bar on the left side of this page.
