What should Twilio Partners know about how to best use Twilio Support?

When contacting Twilio Support, it's best to provide the most context you can. For example, it helps to provide information about how your application works, specific error codes, and multiple examples of calls or messages.

Providing us with as much detail as possible about what you're doing and what went wrong (expected vs. actual behavior) will enable us to more efficiently and accurately answer your questions.

When Twilio Partners' customers have questions, should they contact Twilio Support directly?

It's always best to advise your customers to contact you, the Twilio Partner, for support.

Twilio can only see the requests and responses coming in and out of Twilio, and trouble-shooting often requires knowledge of how your application works and how your customer interacts with your application.

If Twilio Support receives a question from a Twilio Partner's customer, we will typically loop you, the Twilio Partner, into the conversation. This is due to the fact that we don't have visibility into your application.

If you have a customer-specific issue, feel free to include your customer on the support request to start a conversation between all parties.
