Twilio Test Application in Node js

First things first – if you have not yet installed Node.js on your system, you can download an installer for your platform from nodejs.org

Next, install the Twilio module using npm, in the same directory as “Twilio.js”

[sudo] npm install twilio
var twilio = require('twilio');
var client = new twilio.RestClient('TWILIO_ACCOUNT_SID', 'TWILIO_AUTH_TOKEN');
 
// REST client will handle authentication and response serialzation for you.
client.sms.messages.create({
 to:'+16512223344',
 from:'TWILIO_NUMBER',
 body:'Hello World'
}, function(error, message) {
 if (!error) {
 // information about the text messsage you just sent:
 console.log('Success! The SID for this SMS message is:');
 console.log(message.sid);
 
 console.log('Message sent on:');
 console.log(message.dateCreated);
 } else {
 console.log('Oops!This number is invalid.');
 }
});

To run this code, return to the terminal and run

node Twilio.js
