Amazon SNS vs Twilio
Last updated: April 25, 2018
Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS) is a push messaging service that makes it simple & cost-effective to push to mobile devices & distributed services.
Twilio powers the future of business communications, enabling phones, VoIP, and messaging to be embedded into web, desktop, and mobile software. We take care of the messy telecom hardware and expose a globally available cloud API that developers can interact with to build intelligent & complex communications systems. As your app’s usage scales up or down, Twilio automatically scales with you. You only pay for what you use - no contracts, no shenanigans.

Using these add-ons, developers who use Twilio’s API to power the messaging features of their apps and services can easily combine Twilio’s services with those of its partners. Twilio will handle the billing for its partners and developers can access their services with a single API call. For now, Twilio is working with 18 partners, including the likes of IBM Watson, NextCaller, WhitePages Pro, Mobile Commons and Payfone.
