The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the eighteenth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
If you’re a developer who finds the notion of being able to add voice and SMS to your apps through simple webhooks, we can’t stress just how important is to be on the lookout for a major worldwide expansion from this week’s featured #FollowFriday account.
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of San Francisco, CA-based cloud communications service, Twilio (@twilio) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who makes it easy to build killer apps that communicate.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who makes it easy to build killer apps that communicate” in the same sentence.
Does your app need a lesson in communication? Get schooled at Twilio.com!
