Short Code

With Twilio Proxy, you associate phone numbers and short codes (this resource) directly with a Proxy Service. All added numbers go into the Proxy Number Pool associated with a given Proxy Service. For more information on managing the phone numbers in your number pool, refer to our Phone Number Management guide.

Note on Short Codes associated with Services

A Twilio short code associated with a Proxy Service cannot be associated with other Proxy Services in the same account.
