Amazon (AMZN) announced this past week that its Pinpoint system now allows users to trigger 2-way SMS messaging. Some on Wall Street think this is bad for Twilio, but Twilio management thinks this is a good thing.
“This is a continuation of our technology partnership with Amazon. Two-way texting is another capability being utilized by Amazon Pinpoint as part of our existing relationship,” said a Twilio spokesperson.
Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson, who used to work at Amazon, said in a tweet that he’s “excited that Twilio is now helping to power engagement on Amazon Web Services Pinpoint.”
