Kudos to you! This is one of the most perfect plugins I've ever seen. Just what I was looking for. I can't praise it enough! Delay + (advanced) filters + integration. HALLELUJAH! Just a small suggestion. Please add a note for those using Alphanumeric sender ID that they can put their selected name into the "number" field. Took me a while to figure it out. Furthermore, what I would also like to see is integrating Plivo or Vonage. They both offer API service and they are substantially cheaper than Twillio. Or is that already possible? Best.
