Connecting Alexa to Twilio. (Can call anyone or send message to anyone)

Just started looking at Alexa sdk, Connected Alexa directly to Twilio so that it can make a phone call, I know it's possible with IFTTT but this is a bit more quicker to get it going. http://sushilks.blogspot.com/2015/07/connecting-alexa-with-twilio-to-make.html Sending SMS for different things is a obvious use case also it should be possible to call and play different messages, but I have not investigated it.

Very nice. For the issue you're having with people's names. Try giving them nickname's that are at least 2 syllables. I've found Echo doesn't always pick up on syllable words (for whatever reason).
