Tool to watch: Twilio

Cloud-based communications platform Twilio has enabled 1.5 billion application programming interface calls at a 4 million call-per-day pace, according to CEO Jeff Lawson. The company competes with Skype and telcos by allowing developers to add voice and text to applications with only a few lines of code. Twilio Client is serving 340 million endpoints globally, Lawson says.

Why I am Curious

Now any device can talk. Twilio Client lets any browser, phone or tablet talk using only a data connection. With it you can embed voice directly into your web, iPhone or Android apps. Let a website visitor talk to your sales team with a click of a button. Let two friends across the globe catch up using only an iPhone app and a WiFi connection.
