Twilio number verification

Your Twilio number must be verified by Twilio before they will send any SMS messages. Hiro will still send the message, but Twilio has to deliver them and they won’t do that unless you go through the verification process first.

What is 10DLC Verification?

A2P (Application to Person) 10DLC (10 digit long code) is the standard that United States telecom carriers have put in place to ensure that SMS traffic to US end-users through long code phone numbers is verified and consensual.
