The following guide covers the steps for signing up as a Twilio developer and setting up the necessary steps for deploying bots through Message.io.
Create an account
To interact with the Twilio developer platform, create an account at https://www.twilio.com/try-twilio.
Phone number setup
Once you've registered an account, head over to the Console Dashboard.
Note the Account SID and Auth Token fields as these will be required for setup on Message.io.
Next, you'll need to buy a Twilio Phone Number. Click on Phone Numbers > Buy a Number.
There is no charge for the first number for free trial accounts. To learn more about Twilio's free trial restrictions, see How does Twilio's free trial work?
