Cloud Start-up Twilio Sets Eyes on Europe, Opens Office in London

Cloud based telecommunications start-up Twilio has expanded to Europe by opening offices in London.

The company offers an API which allows developers to integrate text, voice and IP telephony services into their telecom applications. The platform's growth has been attributed to the level of extreme simplicity it offers with the API.

According to Tech Crunch, the service has been in beta for the past couple of months in the UK but, now that the company has opened offices here, developers will be able to purchase phone numbers according to their region and integrate them with their applications.

The company also announced that the service has been launched in beta in other European countries like Poland, France, Portugal, Austria and Denmark. Twilio also plans to extend the service in 11 more European nations in the next couple of months.

"Through our powerful APIs we enable developers to build fantastic, innovative products. We estimate there are more than 10 million software developers worldwide, and we look forward to serving a greater number of them than ever before from our European headquarters in London," said Jeff Lawson, Twilio CEO.
