{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index()

{

$receiverNumber = "RECEIVER_NUMBER";

$message = "This is testing from ItSolutionStuff.com";

try {

$account_sid = getenv("TWILIO_SID");

$auth_token = getenv("TWILIO_TOKEN");

$twilio_number = getenv("TWILIO_FROM");

$client = new Client($account_sid, $auth_token);

$client->messages->create($receiverNumber, [

'from' => $twilio_number,

'body' => $message]);

dd('SMS Sent Successfully.');

} catch (Exception $e) {

dd("Error: ". $e->getMessage());

}
