Twilio SMS and iMessage difference
Twilio SMS will look like green bubbles in the iOS/macOS Messages app, while iMessage looks like blue bubbles.
iMessage is an instant messaging service developed by Apple Inc and integrated into the standard Messages app on their platforms: iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and macOS.
iMessage allows users to send texts, documents, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages over the Internet to other iOS or macOS users. iMessage is an alternative to the SMS and MMS messaging for most users with devices running iOS 5/OS X 10.8 or later.
Unlike SMS, all texts sent via iMessage are protected by end-to-end encryption, so only the sender and recipient – no one else, including Apple itself – can read the messages.
