Since Twilio’s beginning, we have been on a mission to change the way people communicate by making it easy for developers to build apps that use communications APIs, abstract away the complexity of working with telecommunications networks, and deliver apps with new application platform models. Now, with more than five million developer accounts, Twilio Developers are creating truly amazing apps. They’ve built apps to help combat forest fires, created viral marketing campaigns for music superstars, empower retail giants to handle millions of calls,  automate urgent IT alerts, and of course, having fun along the way.  

If you’ve ever received a message from Uber, been notified about your stay with Airbnb, authenticated with Twitch using 2FA, or received an email from your favorite brand, you’ve used apps that developers have connected with Twilio.
