  2. Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/phone-numbers and click on the red 'plus' icon.
  3. Pick a number you like and purchase it. Make sure it allows text messages.
  4. Go to https://www.twilio.com/console/project/settings
  5. You can take the account_sid and api key from there and add those to your environment variables or .env file.

Example variables:
